About Me

I’m Carly, an independent-minded, adventure-seeking, travel-happy professional ski racer and digital nomad. Through a continuous process of self-development, I am designing a lifestyle that allows me to

excel as a semi-pro athlete

be location-independent

climb more mountains!

I also enjoy sharing the Big Questions that come up as I follow this winding path. If you are interested in travel, adventure, or endurance sports, or maybe you just  have some Big Questions of your own, you can find out more about my life here. You can also follow me on Facebook and Instagram.

Since graduating from Dartmouth College in 2015, I’ve adopted a Nomadic lifestyle, following the exciting training and racing opportunities all around the world. (Wondering Where I Am Now?) I’ve run, skied, and biked through some pretty amazing places, like here:

The world-renowned Nordic center in Davos, Switzerland

and here:

Beach running in Costa Rica

and here:

Mountain biking in Durango, Colorado

The latest news in my life is that I am currently training in Bend, Oregon, and I will be based here for training until November, when I embark on the domestic pro race circuit, the Super Tour. Technically I am a professional athlete. But that still seems too fancy for me! So here’s another way to look at my life:

word clous

(If you would like to support my race season, or would like me to consider promoting your product while I travel, please check out my Sponsors page! You can also donate securely at my fundraising page.)

My life is full of surprises and adventure, and so to keep up with my competitive goals I’ve had to develop a system for maximizing my training and racing while on the go. (As you can see from My Races, it’s working out alright!) I also had to jump on the fast-track in the world of online income. I offer coaching in endurance sports and lifestyle design, which you can check out here.

I want to share my adventures with you, and help you achieve the lifestyle you dream of! Maybe that means that, like me, you want to travel the world to all the coolest places to hike, ski, run, bike and swim. Maybe have training goals, like a big race coming up, or simply want help getting started with your sport. Perhaps some of you want to

learn how to be a digital nomad.

All of those things are super cool, and you will find info on all of that here at the blog and Reach Your Summit.

p.s. A friend of mine has a passion for interviewing, and asked me if I would enjoy being interviewed by her. Here, you can check out her work, and hear my philosophy on athletics and identity, the Olympic Dream, and the overlap between travel, training, and coaching.

p.p.s. I had an opportunity to tell the story of a teammate’s tragic death and its subsequent effect on my own athletic trajectory at a live storytelling event for outdoors enthusiasts and athletes. The show was put on by Boldy Went, an awesome outdoors adventure podcast and storytelling event. You can listen to my story here.
