The Imogene Team

To Imogene, a Flagstaff Love Letter was sparked by Flagstaff’s inspiring running community and its unique relationship with Colorado’s Imogene Pass Run. More than 70 people—writers and runners and editors and artists—are making this book idea a reality in 2019.

“Uphill” Watercolor by Linda Sherman

The creative team

Three Flagstaff artists are bringing this book to life:

Graphic designer Mary Ross is giving the book its friendly, natural look and feel.

Illustrator Krista Esse has created fun and colorful illustrations for its pages.

Watercolor artist Linda Sherman, an Imogene runner (and holder of an age-group record), contributed her watercolors of southwestern Colorado and painted two brand-new watercolors of the race itself just for this book.
