Olivia is a self-proclaimed 'ultra endurance adventure athlete', which means she is out to challenge herself in any and every way possible. Olivia's athletic roots started in tennis and martial arts and then she was bitten by the running bug in 1994 when she entered her first race, a monstrous 4 mile trail race! Now Olivia eats ultras for breakfast, and when she isn't on the trail she stays busy as an Associate Professor of Epidemiology at UAB's School of Public Health.

Olivia squeezes the most out of everyday and tries to inspire others to live a healthy lifestyle and find adventure in every nook and cranny of their own life. To follow all of Olivia's adventures check out her website:
