Welcome to my blog! My name is Kristen, and my life has been one non-stop adventure since I started running and created my blog, Run Away With Me, back in 2012. Since then, I’ve run races all over the US. But while running was an awesome challenge, it was never my true love – that official title has always belonged to hiking. My dad used to take me hiking and camping at World’s End State Park in PA when I was a little girl, and I’ve loved spending time in the mountains ever since!
In April 2014 my husband and I pursued our dreams of adventure and moved from Philadelphia, PA to Anchorage, AK. Ever since the big move we’ve spent as much time as possible hiking and going on other crazy adventures across Alaska. In 2019 we added a tiny adventure buddy to our lives and now life is even crazier – and way better! Becoming a mom has been the greatest adventure of my life, and I can’t wait to share my love of the outdoors with my son.
Living and raising a child in Alaska is different than the Lower 48 and I’m excited to share all of my crazy northern adventures with you! Get ready to read my story of becoming a mountain mom in the Last Frontier.
