Alyssa Yell is a professional writer on the outside, and an insatiable adventuress on the inside. Alyssa was introduced to Marathon Tours & Travel by way of Iceland, and fell in love with Marathon Tours while crossing the Drake Passage on her way to Antarctica, which remains her favorite place she’s visited. Her yearning to combine travel, running, and beautiful scenery is undying, and she brings an enthusiasm for exploration and a desire to see the world on foot to those around her. Alyssa lives in the hills of San Francisco, California, and has completed dozens of marathons and ultramarathons on nearly every continent. When she’s not hitting the trails, she can be found backpacking, kayaking, and scheming up her next adventure.
