When Not Running - Deb Pero
An element of ultrarunning, or trail running in general, that outsiders wouldn't likely pick up without logging quite a few miles is that ultrarunners have an amazing array of occupations and hobbies. There are firemen, planetary physicists, nannies, bartenders, big animal veterinarians, kazoo players and painters - as in fine art painters.
Deb Pero, who lives in New Hampshire, has finished such gruelling races as the Bighorn 100, Massanutten 100, and Hardrock 100 and is a talented painter. Her website is a true feast for the eyes. I especially liked her Daily Painting Blog. The painting of the oranges below just made my mouth water.
