Mountain Runner Portrait Project #7: Ashley Arnold
2012 Loon Mountain Race & US Women's National Mountain Running Championship
I made this portrait of Ashley Arnold last week at the finish of the Loon Mountain Race on the summit of Loon's North Peak in Lincoln, NH. Ashley is Associate Editor of Trail Runner Magazine and a competitive trail and ultramarathon runner from Carbondale, Colorado. Her accomplishments in the mountains are impressive including a 3rd place finish at the 2010 Leadville 100 Mile Ultramarathon, a win with her sister Cynthia in the 2011 TransRockies Run multi-day stage race and 8th this week at Loon in one of the most competitive women's mountain running fields ever assembled for the National Championship.
Ashley wrote the amazing article "Running for the Red, White and Blue" on the 2011 Women's US Mountain Running Championships that featured JVGR Photography images. She is also the mysterious headless subject of the black and white triptych image that is the the current Joe Viger Photography Facebook fan page cover photo. Those images were also made at the 2011 Mountain Running Championship race at Mt. Cranmore in Conway, NH.
