 Caroline Boller shares how she balances life as an attorney with being one of the USA’s top trail and ultra runners. I’m very lucky to be able to work from home 90% of the time. I go in for meetings, but in general, do everything I need to do from my kitchen counter. This has amazing advantages over an ordinary 9-5 desk job. I get to take the kids to school. I go running at lunchtime. I sit in my sweaty running clothes all day. It also helps that my husband does the shopping and cooking. We have a nice balance going.” – read the interview at “Ultra-Runner, Attorney, and Oenophile Caroline Boller” from RunnerPack
