“I didn’t like running at first, I really didn’t. I don’t know many people that actually do love it right from the get-go.”—Gina Lucrezi

Lucrezi, founder of Trail Sisters, a women’s trail-running journal and running community, started running after her mom bribed her to run around the development where they lived.

She went on to become an indoor track national champion and 10-time All American.

Since then she’s discovered trail running and established Trail SistersGina’s mission, through Trail Sisters, is to increase women’s participation and opportunity in trail running through inspiration, education and empowerment.
