Connor Koch met Ellen Reesor while climbing a steep, technical wall in Colorado’s San Luis Valley. After seeing Ellen execute the climb flawlessly and with so much grace, Connor knew immediately that he had met his dream partner. The most difficult part of their relationship is borders. Ellen is Canadian, and lives in Toronto for part of the year running her yoga studio, while Connor roams around the Mountain West. Balancing a long-distance relationship with their personal lives is a challenge, but they make it work by nurturing each other's passions and focusing on making each other better during their time together.
