Krissy & PD

Ultra Trail Runner

PD (Piedra Dura, which means “Hard Rock” in Spanish) signed up for miles and adventures when she first stared down Krissy Moehl with her big brown eyes. Full of life and energy, the two are a perfect match for their work hard/rest hard approach to life. Krissy has spent the better part of her adult life running ultra trail races and filling her passport with world explorations. As a running coach, author, race director and public speaker her life fully embodies miles, people and mountains. Sharing the trails and life with PD adds a whole new spin on her love and passion. Seeing PD experience these things for the first time renews her own passion. Off the trail, this duo looks forward to road trips, stand up paddle boarding and exploring their new home in the Pacific Northwest.

Quotation Marks

My favorite lesson from PD is, “It’s not always, it’s just right now.” Dogs live in the moment and are doing exactly what they need to do as they need to do it. It won’t last forever, but it is right now. She has morphed from a housebound pup to an adventure seeker, trail explorer, road trip warrior, and social butterfly.

    No matter the temperature, my pup loves to dip her belly in puddles, creeks, snow patches, and lakes – if it’s wet, she’s in. Her quirks always add joy to our runs and this life, so we continue to adapt. Vanlife is great for that meditative reminder: be in the moment and know that the moments are always evolving.
