Alligator Preserves Episode 36: Meet a Silver Queen–Alison Sandoval!

Alison Sandoval is a “Silver Queen” after completing the Leadville Race Series two-day race: a 50-mile mountain bike race on a Saturday followed by a 50-mile foot race the very next day, starting at over 10,000′ elevation and climbing through mountainous terrain from there! And she is the one who inspired her husband (who is the current record holder for the Leadman race) to start competing!

Alison Sandoval starts her new career as a magic paper artist!
