TEDxOverlake - Krissy Moehl - Life in Motion: Learning through Movement

01/07/2011 04:26:39

For over 10 years top ranked ultra-marathoner Krissy Moehl has participated in and won ultra-trail events around the world ranging from 50km to 103 miles. She enjoys both the physical and mental transformations these miles bring to life.
Alongside her passion, Krissy worked full-time in marketing for two outdoor industry companies, and fulfilled a three year commitment to a non-profit working to protect wild spaces. In 2010, her running offered a major life change, and with a leap of faith and hard work Krissy pursued running as a profession. The lessons learned on the trails about persistence, openness and serenity with surroundings continue to guide Krissy down this unknown path. She is passionate, excitable and humbled by the all that life has to offer.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
