In celebration of tomorrow’s Force of Nature Film Night at Common Block — Thursday, July 25th at 8pm — we want to feature some of our own rockstar women of the outdoors. These are folks on our team who run, pedal, paddle, climb, shred and otherwise have a blast outdoors, in and around Southern Oregon. These are our own personal heroes, cheerleaders, and change makers — people we work with everyday who also have a blast making our local hills, trails, lakes and rivers their outdoor playing field.
To all the women on our team who rock doin’ their thing (and doin’ it well), we salute you!
Day Job: Server
Favorite outdoor activities: Trail running, backpacking, mountain biking, jumping into mountain lakes (in the summer!), car camping with an ice chest loaded with delicious food and drinks, and most of all…backcountry skiing.
Favorite post-activity beverage: After I get done with a long day adventuring outdoors, nothing satisfies quite like a Steep Slope Hazy IPA. Go figure!
Day Job: Server and Bartender
Favorite outdoor activities: I love getting off the beaten path with my two favorite gals, Brittney and Joey “the dog.”
Favorite post-activity beverage: Fiery Mule and the Deep Down Double IPA. And water, lots of water.
Day Job: Graphic Designer
Favorite outdoor activities: My favorite outdoor activity these days is hiking new trails in new places with my family and spending time taking in all of the scenery! I love that no matter where you are, if there’s a trail nearby, there’s a new experience just waiting to be had!
Favorite post-activity beverage: After a hike we love to head to a nearby winery or brewery for a snack and liquid reward!
Day Job: Bar Manager and House Manager
Favorite outdoor activities: Nothing beats a morning of backside bluebird powder laps with friends!! Yes please!
Favorite post-activity beverage: Earn your turns, earn your post-workout libations! You can find me sipping me favorite combo, Rogue Runner IPA with a little bourbon on the rocks to boot 😉
Day Job: Marketing and Events
Favorite outdoor activities: Running, camping, lake swimming, rafting, biking and burying her kids in the sand.
Favorite post-activity beverage: Kombucha and a Common Block Rogue Runner IPA
Day Job: HR, Host, House Manager, Team Mom
Favorite outdoor activities: Cross country skiing, running (a nice mix of trails and roads), anything on the water but not in the water (I’m always cold!), and riding my bike.
Favorite post-activity beverage: CBBC Pale Ale
Day Job: Server, Host and (now!) Registered Nurse
Favorite outdoor activities: Experiencing the stillness of the outdoors is essential for my wellbeing. The stress of a busy life doesn’t stand a chance against my favorite outdoor activities: trail running, gardening, backcountry skiing, and mountain biking.
Favorite post-activity beverage: Old Fashioned or Steep Slope Hazy IPA
Day Job: Server, Bartender, House Manager, Line Cook (she does it all!)
Favorite outdoor activities: I have an amazing time pushing myself to do things I never thought I’d be able to do. From climbing to the top of Pilot Rock, to biking 30K in the Siskiyou Challenge, to running 220 miles to the coast with my teammates in the Wild Rogue Relay, I have squashed those voices telling me what I can’t accomplish!
Favorite post-activity beverage: Rogue Runner IPA is optimal for post-adventure, victory beer drinking!
