Elyse ran cross-country and track at UNC Chapel Hill, and after graduation moved west to Portland, OR, to work for Nike Running. Elyse’s career eventually took her abroad, during which time she took cooking classes throughout Europe, Africa, and Asia. Armed with amazing recipes from around the world, she began cooking from scratch to fuel her athletic endeavors. She discovered that by incorporating more fats into her diet she was stronger, healthier, and happier than ever before.

Elyse quit a successful marketing career of 10 years for the chance to help others eat right and moved to New York City to study nutrition at the Natural Gourmet Institute, the nation’s top health-supportive culinary school.

Elyse can be found in her kitchen and on the trails in Bend, Oregon. Contact Elyse directly via this form or elyse (at) runfasteatslow.com.
