My name is Molly, and I'm a 26 year old runner, cyclist, skier and all around endorphin and mountain junky. My boyfriend Audun is a regular character on the blog and has the misfortune of having to help me go through with the majority of my harebrained schemes. I'm American, but I've lived in Norway for the last 15 years, so you could say I've gone native. In my real life I'm a PhD student in nanomechanics.

But this blog isn't about my real life, where I spend 8 hours a day in the lab. It's about my adventures, both big and small, because I think every day should be an adventure. I've been chronicling my adventures here since 2012. If you're new to this blog, try checking out the race and adventure pages to find some good reading. 

I live by the principle "If it's not on Strava, it didn't happen". Follow me on Strava or on Instagram to see what I'm up to!

What is a Wild Bazilchuk?
The Wild Bazilchuk is a rare creature with inordinately strong thighs, usually 168 - 172 cms in height. Generally dirty, possibly wearing purple. Found in cold climates (especially wherever there's powder). Difficult to spot due to an inability to sit still for more that the amount of time it takes to eat a piece of cake.

Wild Bazilchuk sighting 

I'd like to dedicate this blog to my mother, the original Wild Bazilchuk.


  1. Wow, the original Wild bazilchuk is honored! Be wild!
