I have been running in a competitive aspect since my high school days, ran 2 years collegiate for a Division 1 school (Missouri State) as a sprinter, where I excelled in the 100meter- 200meter distance. Post-college I dabbled in ‘longer’ distances of 3-5 miles (Yes that was LONG to me!) and some fun 5k and 10k distance races.
When I moved to San Francisco in the beginning of 2005 I found a very active and athletic running scene and wanted to become a part of it. I trained for and raced my first half marathon in 2007 and was hooked. From there I ran a few more half marathons then my first marathon in Chicago in 2008. I was then sucked into the world of triathlon (thanks to my then boyfriend- now husband- who was training for his first Ironman). Several triathlons later, including a full Iron-man Lake Placid 2009, I went back to my true love of running and discovered the trails in the Marin Headlands and Mt Tam just North of San Francisco. And now I mix speed/ road 5k to marathons with the longer/elevation challenging trail races up to the 50 mile distance (so far!).
