Heather Gannoe and Geoff Hart
On parallel paths, Heather and Geoff met after each had endured sudden and difficult divorces and each had moved to be near family in Vermont. They connected and started doing endurance events together of different types, always finishing together hand in hand. Long trail runs became their common passion as they healed, grew as individuals and grew together. They have provided stability and support for one another through difficult life changes and the parenting two young boys as well as constantly encouraging others to find the joy of trail running. Within the 60 nominations for them were many comments about their support and encouragement of others which fits so well with what this “tribe” of ours (all 7 billion of us) is all about. For all the adventures Heather has had, this will actually, be her first trip to the mountains of the western US and we hope it will be one her and Geoff thoroughly enjoy!
