Bree Lambert is the definition of a jack of all trades. She is a personal trainer, running coach, nutritionist, and ultra runner on top of being a wife, mother and competitive athlete. She has a collection of impressive wins under her belt that she achieved throughout the years, the prestigious title of 2016 USA Track and Field Female Masters Mountain Ultrarunner of the Year (Pacific Division), and earning the USATF Female Masters National 50km Trail Championship in the same year. At the Tahoe Rim 100 mile endurance run last week, Bree got 1st overall female and 13th overall with a time of 25:18:56.
Bree celebrated her 50th birthday last week and was excited to kick off her new decade with a big win. “I feel like Ultrarunning is a sport of maturity. It’s not a sport where you burn out quickly, and you are very capable of getting better for a longer period of time. I aim for longevity and I plan to be in this sport for a very long time,” Bree responded when being asked about her thoughts on being competitive throughout these next 10 years.
