Natalie Brunson, Steward at Four Lakes Forest Preserve

Mother, trail runner and forest preserve explorer. Natalie and her running crew set themselves a challenge: Run 42 in ’15. She and her running crew successfully navigated diverse and challenging terrain in every one of the forty-two forest preserves in 2015. Natalie “goes the extra mile” by serving as a volunteer trail steward at Four Lakes Forest Preserve. “Don’t ask me why I run in the woods; ask yourself why you don’t.”
