She was given a couple of iron infusions, which completely transformed things and she went from running 10:30 minute miles to sub-8:30 in the course of a couple of weeks. Unfortunately it turned out that the anaemia wasn't a one-off, but a side effect of celiac disease.

Amy Hamilton has always been an athlete. She's run both Boston and New York with times as fast as 2:57. After a health ordeal she was sidelined for the first time in her life. She returned to running and decided to take to the trails. She soon started to go after 100 mile races but couldn't figure out why she couldn't finish them. After multiple attempts, she finally started eating more and came out with a 1st place finish at Yeti 100.

Alicia is not running for gold, but she could if she wanted to. Alicia finds comfort and relative discomfort blazing through the forest of the west coast and beyond. She runs with reckless abandon for costumes (brought on by an early figure skating career), reindeer games, grueling uphills, yam fries, planning her start-up, micro-breweries, testing her limits and to simply be able to say “yes” where others might say “no way”.
