Endurostew is the brain-child of Stef Bernosky. Originally launched in 2013, as a place for distributing training advice and race reports, Endurostew is ever-evolving and expanding into new domains. A little bit of this and a little bit of that, like your favorite chilli or stew.
A non-runner most of my life, I found a love for running in adulthood after embarking on my career as a geologist for a major oil and gas company. Living in Houston, I longed for mountains and the outdoors, as many geologists come to find. After running a few marathons, I found the sport of trail running. After a few races, there was no looking back! I have run marathons(+) in >15 states all over the United States on flats, mountains, high altitude and everything between.
Approaching nearly a decade in the oil and gas business, I decided it was time to forge new paths and enrolled in the Data Science Immersive at Galvanize in Seattle. It gave me an excellent opportunity to apply my learnings surrounding uncertaintiy, risk and scientific (geostatistical) modeling to a new industry and domain.
My capstone project at Galvanize utilized predictive modeling to better classify athletes participating in ultramarathons. I plans to mature this work in the future as I embark on future side projects, including pace charts and training plans. I am also a RRCA Certified Running Coach.
