But turns out, Shannon is pretty competitive
Shannon Mick is a Licensed Professional Counselor who specializes in Telemental Health and is an Ultramarathoner. She first got into running when she was dating her husband. She thought running was stupid and would kind of get mad at him for not spending time with her and instead going for a run. She ended up doing a 5k and finished second to last. She is a competitive person and knew she could do better than that!
She built up and eventually signed up for a 50 miler before her husband did! She has now done several 50 milers and will be doing the Oil Creek 100 for the third time in October. She has DNF twice: once at mile 76 and the next at mile 85. She is determined to complete it this year and has hired a running coach and worked on her stride.
Shannon has two FKTs. They are both unsupported which means she wasn’t even allowed to text or call someone along the way. She has dealt with hallucinations, rolled ankles and cougars all while on the trail.
