As a teenager, Payge was in a horrific car accident that left her with a broken back and in a body cast.  She learned how to walk again and has not let the chronic pain from her injury control her life.

Payge has climbed in the Himalaya, summited the highest mountains in Africa, Japan and the continental United States, cycled through Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, dogsled in Alaska, backpacked across Northern Spain, the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and California’s 221-mile John Muir Trail. She has competed in 250km self-supported ultra stages races from Iceland to North America, trekked through the deserts of Egypt and Jordan, the Amazon Rainforest, across Costa Rica and the list goes on!
