  • Adam Sierakowski

    ”I live in Baltimore, MD, where I balance my Ph.D research with triathlon training. I’ve transitioned to triathlon from running eight years ago and have completed dozens of Olympic and Half-Iron distance races. I attribute much of my current fitness to adopting minimalist running, and encourage everyone to switch to low profile shoes, whether for running or the real world.”

  • Alex Nolan

    Runner, dog walker, yogi, hiker, cyclist, traveler. Anything that keeps me moving is my motivation. I am a 26 year old athlete of all trades living in the wilds of the Houston urban jungle. When I'm not being active you can find me writing my fitness blog, planning my next adventure or cooking up some healthy chow to fuel my craziness. I started running because I honestly never thought I could be a runner, and once I started down this road, I just can't stop.

    ”I have transformed my life from one of unhappiness to one of fierce passion. I’ve lost over 40 pounds through my Transformation and have found confidence, a job, an attitude, a new outlook on life and that my passion is to help others move forward, fiercely to a healthy lifestyle. I created a mantra for myself called Fierce Forward. I wanted to begin lifting weights but was scared to cross that line separating the weight room from the cardio room I grew to feel at home in. As I was running on the treadmill, I knew I had a choice and that I had to just take one step forward over that line and put a fierce face on. Four years later, I am a Personal Trainer to my Community, called Team Fierce that has over 20 women going through my fierce training and learning how to live healthfully and balanced. ”

  • Brian Fisher

    ”I believe running is about our relationship with our bodies and the environment around us. Running should be simple and natural; from the foods we use as fuel to the shoes that provide the connection between our feet and the ground. RUN REAL is a philosophy that applies to my life because my body performs best with technology adjusting neither my food nor my feet.”

  • Amanda Mowry

    ”I am passionate about nutrition and healthy living. That passion permeates every aspect of my life: work, family, and running. Originally from Connecticut, I moved to Ohio after my tour in the Army. It was here that I found a home in the running and ultra community. When I'm not chasing my three kids, or talking about whole-food, plant-based nutrition, you can find me splashing in puddles or getting muddy on the trails.”

  • Courtney Lee

    I started my journey to health in December 2011 - weighing in at just under 300lbs. In the first year of my journey I lost over 70lbs. Lifting weights, running on the treadmill, kettlebell training and kickboxing have become some of my favorite things to do when I'm not playing super mom to my 2 children (ages 4 & 3). I aim to motivate and inspire others through my blog TreadmillRunway.com (Update: Courtney has now lost more than 100 lbs. and is a certified bicycling instructor).

  • David Reese

    Hi, my name is David Reese and I’m an Ultra-marathon runner. It takes me about 26.3 miles to warm up and steep climbs & descents are both close friends of mine. My preferred running surface is dirt, and my preferred running attire would be a loin cloth and bare feet… but let’s be real: skimpy shorts and SKORA shoes are a great alternative.

  • Evelin Mortensen Henderson

    I am that half Norwegian, half Swedish girl you can see running around on the Big Island of Hawaii with a big smile on her face. Relatively new runner who earlier in life stayed active through skiing, basketball, spinning classes and hiking. “Running? Not my thing!” I would say and laugh until that day when I laced my old sneakers up and went out for a run. Running has since then become my big passion and it plays a big role in my life.

  • Graham mueller

    Growing up among the oil rigs and grain fields of western North Dakota is a curious place to get a start in something like snowboarding. That’s just where the curiosity starts with me. After the brief distraction of a journalism degree at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, I made my way west. Now hunkered in the shadow of Mt. Hood, you might find me kicking rocks or cross-threading bolts. Riding powder, running real, drinking tea. Always thinking about words. Relentlessly engaged in the lunge and parry of ballpoint, wood pulp and gray matter. Becoming “the mantis shrimp of happiness” — my way of striving to see happiness in every situation.

I am an ultra runner who loves running for the pure joy of it. It doesn't have to be a race to get me motivated, it just has to be the distance.

    I am a writer, runner and hard cider drinker who comes to Portland via Seattle and Phoenix. My original SKORA Form review involved repeatedly smelling, opening and closing the shoe box, which looked as weird as it sounds. My quest for active, gluten-free, and non-processed living keeps me busy between taking pictures of feet for Instagram. My favorite running shoe ever is the Skora Phase.
