Destin Beach Ultra
Complete my first 100 miles at Snowdrop.
Long Term Goals
Someday I’d love to have the confidence to do a self supported stage race specifically Trans Pecos Ultra in West Texas.
- First race ever was Destin Beach Ultra. Never ran a race before this so it was kinda a big deal to me
- Pistol Ultra 100k was my longest run to date.
- Back Country Rise 50k was my first time running a race in the Mountains. I’ve done most of my running as a Florida flatlander, so this was very intimidating, but a goal I wanted to do once I moved to Washington. It was the best experience.
Favorite Part About Being a Runner
If I’m going somewhere, I’m running there. It’s how I get around.
Destin Beach Ultra is my favorite as it’s a fundraising event for Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Not to mention the great scenery spending a day running on Florida’s beautiful beaches.
