Anna Frost has made a career of doing some of the hardest athletic feats you can find and excelling at them. From vertical kilometer races, to adventure races to winning both the Hardrock 100 and The North Face 50…twice! She and a partner were also the first women to complete Nolans 14. Nolans 14 if you aren’t acquainted is a fun little challenge in Colorado of seeing if you can do a line of 14 peaks over 14,000 feet high, with no marked trail, 40,000 feet of elevation gain and a 60 hour time limit.
What I think I liked best about Frosty (her nickname since she was a kid) though is that she has made the sports world a tool for empowering women, inspiring girls, traveling all over the world, avoiding winter and finding cool things to make jewelry out of. Having just had a little girl I can’t help but hope my girl finds some of Frosty’s spirit!
Also if you are at all into trail running check out her adventures and camps at www.trailrunadventures.com because they look AWESOME and yet somehow also affordable.
