Solo is a Siberian born and Canadian trained obstacle racer. Late bloomer, she did not run her first road race until her mid-20s. Since then, her physical pursuits have become progressively longer, and progressively muddier as she made the transition from road racing to trail racing, and finally, to obstacle racing. Now a self-professed adrenaline junkie, she has been a military style bootcamp instructor, became a yoga teacher, took off to India for six months, summitted three peaks in Himalayas, ran races in US, Canada, Russia and Israel, skydived and bungee jumped, and rode donkeys in Jordan. When she is not pummeling her dopamine receptors, she is a health coach, a freelance writer, a yoga teacher and a psychology professor.
