Running Accomplishments

In 2017, I had a stroke & lost my vision on my left side. In 2018, I returned to running & founded a community initiative called Stridesforstroke. Our goal is to raise $120,000 towards a rapid blood test for stroke.

Favorite Part About Being a Runner

The feeling of the trail under my feet, the beauty of the trees, streams & mountains…and that most steep cliffs seem to be on the same side as my blind side 😉
