Writing, speaking + moving

I'm a writer and podcaster in love with all things cycling, running, nutrition and movement-related. When not outside, I'm writing about being outside and healthy habits of athletes.

I created The Consummate Athlete weekly podcast, website and book, Becoming A Consummate Athlete with my husband, cycling coach Peter Glassford. 

I'm a little obsessed with getting people—especially women—psyched on adventure and being outside. That's why I created the Shred Girls, a young adult fiction series and online community focused on getting girls excited about bikes. I also run the Business of Fitness Podcast, focusing on bringing more women into the athletic industry.


Additionally, I'm the author of multiple nonfiction books and writes for publications including Bicycling magazine +Outside.

I regularly host talks and runs clinics for cyclists and teaches yoga online and IRL… And in my spare time, I'm ultra-running and racing on trails, riding bikes, or hiking with my mini-dachshund DW.

Talks on all things health + wellness-related, including corporate packages that combine short presentations with training plans and fun virtual yoga sessions.

Podcast Reviews

I LOVE listening to Molly Hurford on the Consummate Athlete Podcast. She cracks me up! I listen to her and often laugh out loud, so that definitely helped with the run. 

Great podcast that offers real world, common sensical advice for athletes balancing professional and family obligations. Every episode has lots of great tips for self improvement.
