Muriel Bartelme Kreske grew up in Michigan, has a husband named Bryan, is an Executive Creative Director at an advertising agency in Minneapolis, and has more energy than any other person named Muriel in the history of the world. Part of that is fueled by the Grande Blonde roast from Starbucks she drinks every morning. Part of that is because she has to keep up with a rambunctious 9-year-old son, Griffin. And part of that is because she just has that kind of personality. That energy fueled her to losing 100 pounds in 2018, a transformation that included being drawn to moving fast in the form of walking. She’s relatively new to trail running and just finished her first Ultra in May of this year at the Smith Rock 50K, and recently finished the Headlands 50-Miler in August. She also points out she’s a huge University Michigan fan and tends to mix up many common sayings.

Give yourself some grace; something Muriel reminds herself of often.  On this podcast you will meet Muriel Bartelme Kreske and hear her inspiring, uplifting story.  She talks about the team she put in place to help her successfully lose 100 lbs.  How moving her body quickly went from walking fast to running ultra marathons.  Muriel talks about her first ultra-attempt which resulted in a DNF.  How that one DNF was so hard to overcome but ended up being a blessing in disguise.  Muriel is a lively, positive, happy person who is still learning and growing in her journey.  We have no doubt you will love her story and be rooting for her.
