Ellen Miller (Vail, CO) has been the women’s team coach for the US Mountain Running Team for the past several years. Most people don’t know that Ellen is also an experienced mountaineer who has climbed to the summit of Mt. Everest. I caught a peek of Ellen most recently on the Discovery Channel show Everest: Beyond the Limit where she was greeting climbers returning from the summit. Ellen is a good friend of Russell Brice – the owner of Himex and “star” of Everest: Beyond the Limit. You can read more about Ellen on the Outside Magazine blog here. Above is a photo of Ellen and Dave Dunham at the 2009 World Mountain Running Championships.
