“I love Ski Racing, because it supplies a place for people to go as fast as they want without anyone telling you you have to slow down. It is a sport that when you enter the start gate it is only about you and how fast you can go, trying to get to the finish before anyone else did. It allows such freedom. There is no style points, just you and the clock.”

Her favorite RooEpic product: Headbands
“My favorite RooEpic product cannot be just one thing. I love the headbands to be able to put my crazy hair back and out of my face. I also love my tights, they keep my legs warm with attitude!”
“I love the company and what it was made for. Based off simplicity, just trying to keep everyone sporty, warm and looking cool at all times, but then an added twist that not a single on is really alike. All patterns are different and fit to each individual.”
Thanks for being an epic person and an epic athlete!
