Willie McBride--Coach, Trainer and Mountain-focused Endurance Adventurer, primarily on Foot and Ski.
My background in outdoors began as a climber at age 10. I progressed in that sport, rock climbing, ice climbing, and mountaineering through college until an accident my senior year steered me toward trail running and ultra running, then fast packing and remote multi day adventures
I love to draw and make art and have done so all my life. I also used to sew and designed and made women's purses for a period.
I admire Jared Campbell and Leor Pantilat if we're talking famous athletes, but there are countless more men and women I admire doing these sports besides just the well-known/celebrity ones. I admire anyone getting out there and getting after it for the love of it (and doing so in an environmentally responsible way.)
