Mountain Runner Portrait Project #5: Brandy Erholtz
2012 Mt. Washington Road Race
Brandy Erholtz is one of America's best Mountain Runners. She was named female mountain runner of the year in 2008 and 2009 by USA Track and Field. Brandy is a four-time member of the U.S. Mountain Running Team and has been the top American woman at the World Championships. Brandy was second at the Mt. Washington Road Race twice this year. She has won the race twice and placed second the last two years.
Brandy is also one of the players in my all time favorite racing image. I made the photo last year of Brandy showing amazing determination to win third at the National Championships at Mt. Cranmore and secure a spot on the 2011 US Team. More on that here... http://joeviger.blogspot.com/2011/07/hundreths-of-second-to-world.html.
Brandy will be back in New Hampshire this weekend trying to earn a spot on the 2012 US Mountain Running Team and a trip to the World Championships in Italy when she competes in the Loon Mountain Race. Have a great race Brandy!
