  • I am extremely proud that I was never a runner in highschool (we didn’t have a program) nor College (I was solely focused on work and my academics).  I honestly did not know I carried such a gift until post-partum when I was working to get back in shape in 2012.  I was spotted as being rather fast, and I continue that growth today.  I am excited to see where the road will take me as well as the training, and I am excited to have my coach, Andy Pierce, as a big support for that. I ran my first marathon with little to no training (or smart training) in 3:17, but have found that my sweet spot is middle-distance running and I really love the half marathon.
