Gina Valdes ('09) Keen Observer of Life

Physical movement has always been at the heart of Gina's artistic expression of life.
While in high school at PRCA, she delighted audiences with her abilities in creative dance. This love for kinetic expression has transitioned to marveling at God’s creation while hiking or trail running in majestic splendor with her faithful and capable dog, Kobuk. This time on the trail has conditioned Gina to successfully run eight marathons and countless half marathons. 

For close to six months of the year, Gina enjoys the pristine and rugged mountains of Alaska where she belongs to a community of people who share her love for fitness and appreciation of the Creation. While wintering in Tucson, she can be found working at Lululemon, enjoying the company of fitness minded people who desire to intentionally improve themselves. 

Gina is a teacher, a philosopher, a poet, and a keen observer of life. She has a large following on her Instagram page, runningwildwellness.  Her reflections allow you a peek into her pursuit of tender kindness and profound joy in this, for the time being, less than perfect world. Gina’s voice in the blog is one of compassion, with well-crafted and encouraging words, that will give you a window to her inspirational search for authentic connection and exhilarating adventure. God is good.
