“Competitive ultra marathoner” only begins to describe Ashley Nelson. Add survivor of a hit and run, not expected to make it to the ambulance. The achievements of this Bay Area mother of two, ages 8 and 6, are simply awe-inspiring.
The 2009 accident left Nelson with severe brain injuries. "I was given no hope.Longstory short, I ran my first marathon in 2015, my first ultra in 2016. I ran the Lake Sonoma 50 in 2018 and did very well."
