Vicki Ash Hunter qualified for the marathon Olympic Trials in 1988 and became a trusted coach to others. Even after motherhood and a life-altering injury, nothing could keep Hunter from the roads and trails around Boulder.

Listen to Hunter reflect on her life with running at this author talk at Boulder Book Store.
