Years Running: 4

Age: 35

Upcoming races: Orcas Island 50k, Miwok 100k 2018

Current goals: Improve speed, timing. Build for the 100k.

Long-term, big shot goals that you someday hope to achieve with running:  Run the Western States 100 and/or the HURT 100 before I’m 40.

Tell us about your running accomplishment that you’re most proud of and why: I completed my first ultra earlier this year – Chuckanut 50k. It was cold, muddy and wet and I hadn’t experienced anything quite like it before but i hung in there to finish in just over 7 hours. I want to go back and improve on that!

Favorite part about being a runner: I love to be outdoors and explore nature and cities I live in/visit. Running helps me get a good feel for the local area – I feel like I know a place better after having run it. I also love to read and thanks to audiobooks, podcasts and audio periodicals, I can catch up on my reading while I’m running – its focused and uninterrupted!

Best races: Chuckanut 50k, Rock N Roll New Orleans Marathon, Rock N Roll Seattle Marathon

Running words of wisdom: Just keep at it!
