Bio

Late bloomer, started running at just shy of 42. Ran my first 5k that fall (about 7 months after I first ran 2 miles without stopping and 8 months after I started run/walk intervals). Loved it and was hooked on racing. Signed up for my first half the next year (2013, the Wineglass) and had a truly life changing experience. I was never very athletic in school (though I wasn’t terrible) and would never have imagined I could do something like that. I was so amazed at myself. And since then, I have also found a wonderful running community and had so much fun challenging myself to keep getting better. I run 40-50 miles a week now and love racing. I love just getting out there, in any weather, solo or with friends, on any terrain. I was planning on running my first marathon last year to celebrate turning 50, but both races I was considering were canceled. So now I am hoping to make that happen this year!

Upcoming Races

Registered for Summer Night Trail quarter and Monumental full currently. I would like to do more races but will see which look likely to happen.
