Clare

Ultra and trail running

Clare had some unfinished running business after running cross country and track at Princeton, so naturally, she ran a 50-miler in Northern Thailand among some of the most poisonous snakes in the world. Did she have any Honey Stinger, you ask? Absolutely not! She started her ultra career eating sticky rice drenched in molasses. How things progress! Clare now lives in her home state of Colorado and thinks fighting for public land protections and climate change mitigation is way more interesting than running for hours on end. Also of note: her Dad keeps bees in his backyard in suburban Denver. Colony collapse disorder be damned!

Most buzzworthy accomplishment:

Winning Leadville 100 with the second-fastest time ever.

Favorite Honey Stinger product:

EVERY SINGLE STINGER GEL EVER MADE.

Favorite quote and/or words of wisdom:

Don’t f*ck up.
