I first met Lee during the Tour Divide in 2017. It was raining off and on since the start of the race and Lee and her friend came by me while I stopped to put on my rain jacket. I could see right away Lee was exactly where she wanted to be. She was happy, very happy despite the dismal conditions. (She was also fast as hell too!)
I wouldn’t see Lee until days later at Brush Mtn Lodge in Colorado. I almost didn’t recognize her. Her face was so swollen from a medical condition that came up, that I wasn’t sure it was her. Despite the weather, her health and a broken bike she was still positive and looking how to continue to move forward. Many others I know would not have had the same composure or drive Lee did.
I saw her one more time during the race. It was my last day, Lee had jumped up ahead of me to finish with her friend. You guessed it, Lee was smiling. Since then I have followed Lee online, read about her accomplishments, I saw her this year that Colorado Trail Race and the more I have learned about her the more I see her passion.
Her answers to the above questions confirm my thought that she would be a great candidate for the Passion Profiles. Lee is a driving force, not only in her own life but that of others through her storying telling and work with The Adventure Syndicate.
Take some time and learn more about Lee and her work at the links below. You’ll be better for it.
