BHP 039: Allison Roskelley | Type 2 Fun, Seeking Challenges

Allison Roskelley recently completed the first SUP descent of the Spokane River, covering 112 miles in 4 days.

An Adidas-sponsored adventure athlete, Allison is a digital marketer by day, but action sports run in the family – her husband, Jess Roskelley, was just named 2018’s #2 most adventurous athlete in the world by Men’s Journal, and her father in law is famous alpinist John Roskelley.

We met Allison in July at Outdoor Retailer in Denver where we talked adventure, our favorite kind of fun – type 2 fun – and constantly challenging ourselves in order to grow and evolve.
