Krysta Gunvalson

Krysta is an East Coast turned Midwest transplant currently living in Portland, OR, but is home wherever she can run. She is a runner for the Oiselle team and is passionate about running and the communities that it creates. Her long-term running goal is to run a 3:00 marathon, but for now will settle for running the 2017 Boston Marathon. When she isn't running, Krysta loves to be active outdoors, travel, and spend time with her husband and their puggle, Duke.
  • This is great. The mental piece of the marathon is SO HARD. I’ve been letting negative thoughts take over a lot of my runs and it is not ok. Time to start visualizing and staying positive 🙂

    • So tough, but if you can train your body physically, you can absolutely train your mind! Good luck!

    what running app do you guys recommend for iPhones? I’m fond of running and race walking, first used Nike’s running app, but after a while I realized it has serious problems and it doesn’t fit my needs. now I use SportMe [https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/half-marathon-marathon-training/id588594735?mt=8]and I’m ok with it for the moment, I’ll see how it goes.

      Most of us actually don’t use apps, rather some form of a GPS watch. What have you found is the best thing about SportMe?
