Jax Mariash is a runner, adventure seeker, entrepreneur, lover, dreamer and doer. You could say she is one of those girls that doesn't really sit still because she loves life and the outdoors so much and all that it has to offer that she tries to enjoy every single bit of it 24/7. Mariash is an inspirational vehicle to athletes, entrepreneurs, and women to push the envelope and follow their dreams. Her goal is to inspire the masses to get outside and explore, while living life to the fullest. Life is so short—she believes you just have to get after it and live it! For Mariash, running in the mountains ignites the soul, allowing her thrive and grow as an individual. Some days it is to sort out business (or step away from it), and on others it is for solitude, or to visit with a friend, or coach an athlete. Whatever the case, she hopes her achievements, and passion for running and life rubs off on as many souls as possible.
