Leah Thomson Epps is a longtime resident of the Denver, Colorado area and resides in the foothills with her Jackson Hole, Wyoming Native Husband, Ronnie, and their pawkid, Louie the German Shorthaired Pointer. Leah is a lifetime fitness junkie and weekend warrior. She’s spent the last 20 years overcompensating for her desk job by packing in as much outdoor adventure time as possible on the weekends and on vacation, be it trail running, backpacking, hiking, camping, paddle boarding, biking or just getting in a great workout outdoors. Leah moves seamlessly from the workday gym life grind into the wilderness. In order to derive the most out of her outdoor adventures she strives to maintain a very high fitness regimen during the week. Leah is a perfect product tester because she represents the population of people and especially women that want to get out there adventuring and make the most out of every second without having to stop and think about their gear; because nobody’s got time for that.
In recent years, Leah has competed in 30 road and trail races ranging from 10 to 30 miles in the rocky mountains and runs between 25 and 65 miles of trail per week depending on what her next goal is. “The outdoor adventures I enjoy mandate a fairly high level of physical fitness” and therefore I like to constantly challenge and push my body to see what I can do and accomplish next. I enjoy keeping my body and my mind sharp and constantly surprised!
On a dare, Leah competed in 8 Bikini Bodybuilding contests winning 5 state-level competitions and placing top 15 nationally. I like the products I use and test to be able to function well in a multitude of different venues and activities. I very much enjoy one item that has a ton of functionality and multi-purposes.
