Current Goals

I love trail- running and would like to get stronger at hills. I would like to build my base enough to attempt 100 miler next spring/summer.

Long Term Goals

I would like to become a competitor in the sport. I want to run the rest of my life so making it a constant priority in a busy life schedule is a major goal of mine. Long term I want to always remember why I started and have continued to go back to the sport after multiple injuries. It is all about the process for me!

Running Accomplishments

I have ran 8 half marathons, some trail and some road
I ran the deception pass 25k in Dec 2017
I ran the Whiskey town 25k April 2018
Had more races signed up but they were cancelled due to smoke and fires in the summer of 2018

Favorite Part About Being a Runner

I love that I can almost be a kid again. Leave any stress at the trail-head and go get lost on some trails in the woods for hours. I love how happy I am magically after a run.

Running Words of Wisdom

This is tough! I have two fave quotes by some amazing runners that I always keep in my mind:

“Every morning in Africa a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest Lion or it will die. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest Gazelle or it will starve. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a Lion or Gazelle when sun comes up you’d better be running” Roger Bannister

“Its impossible to know your true potential, if you’re not willing to risk pushing too far from time to time”
