Meghan is a senior born and raised in the merry land of Maryland, spending her winters skiing and her summers swimming along the eastern shore. Some of her favorite memories growing up include endless hikes through the state park that was her backyard. She is not athletic; she tried and failed at virtually every sport offered (yeah, Jordan didn’t make his high school basketball team, but she didn’t make any team, out of 3 attempts). Luckily, this desperation helped her realize her passion for running, whether on a trail, road, or track. She now spends much free time running increasingly long distances and has sights set on one of those masochistic 100-milers someday, somewhere, somehow.
In the meantime, she loves exploring the wonders of the wild wild West Coast, and especially loves doing so in the company of the exquisite humans she meets through this organization. She loves trail talks, campfire riddles, soul-sharing, stargazing, and the peace of the natural world around her.
She also goes to school and studies International Relations, and is supposed to graduate in 2015.
