Running Accomplishments

Not much to report here since I really just started. Backcountry Rise 50k was my first ever foray in this distance. Finished in 7h 15m and could walk the next day so was super happy about that!

Favorite Part About Being a Runner

At my age, and with my kids, I love to show them you are never too old to try something new. The beauty and solemnity of a good trail run, coupled with the supportive and encouraging environment and awesome people makes it such a wonderful community to be involved with.

Best Races

Welp, there aren’t much to report, so it’s a tie between Backcountry Rise 50k and Cottontail 6h!

Running Words of Wisdom

Be yourself. Run your race. Take the time to look up and around. Stop and smell the flowers, breath in the air, and take that picture. Be thankful for the ability to do this amazing thing called running.
