I'm Patty Hodapp — a writer and editor reporting from the intersection of fitness and adventure. I have ten years of experience in journalism and digital storytelling for national brands including Outside, Men's Journal, VICE Sports, Travel Channel, Spartan Race, Shape and Yoga Journal. I cover gear, travel, fitness, wellness and the outdoors.

As Founder & Chief Storyteller at Hodapp Media, I engage passionate consumers to grow digital audiences and build business for big brands. 



I travel, write and edit for national publications. I'm Minnesotan at heart, Coloradan by zip code. I fly fish, snowboard and love a good campfire. Here's my story.
