Janelle in her own words:
“Trail runner born and raised in the front range of Colorado. Started running as a kid with my dad then picked it back up in high school and went to Colorado State University on track and cross country scholarship.
Started racing on trails in 2020 and have had a couple wins at broken arrow sky race and the golden trail national series race in the Azores.
Signed on with Inov-8 as an ambassador at the beginning of 2022”
