Although Carlee was born and raised in Michigan (and has her loyalties to ALL of their sports teams), she currently lives in sunny Southern California. She found running accidentally (she didn’t have any hobbies she could call her own and a friend suggested she train for the 2012 Disneyland Half Marathon) and hasn’t stopped since.
Carlee has smiled her way through countless races, including fun runs, 5Ks, 10Ks, Half Marathons, Full Marathons, Ultra Relays, Ultramarathons, etc. Some of her biggest running accomplishments thus far have been qualifying and running the Boston Marathon, running the Grand Canyon Rim2Rim2Rim and tackling Mount Whitney (the tallest mountain in the contiguous United States).
When not running, Carlee loves camping with her hubby and pup (#WaltTheWienerDog) in their AdventureMobile, enjoying the beautiful outdoors, being active with friends and family, blogging (CarleeMcDot.com) and smiling her way through life.
She has been vegetarian since 2005 and has recently transitioned to completely plant-based. Real food has always been super important to her and she appreciates that not only does PROBAR create delicious, convenient, healthy, and plant-based food products but that a commitment to quality, sustainability and fantastic taste is at the forefront of everything PROBAR does.
Carlee loves working at her local mom-and-pop running store. The running community is a big part of her life and she loves having the opportunity to give back, as well as sharing her knowledge and passion with others.
Carlee's current goal is to continue running happy while staying injury-free and exploring the great outdoors. She believes the best way to see a new place is lacing up her running shoes and exploring by foot. Her goals may have transitioned away from a specific time or race distance, but that doesn't mean she lacks drive or determination.
