I am competitive runner, CrossFit enthusiast, healthy cooking coach, and food & fitness blogger (thefitfork.com). I enjoy racing all distances from 5k to marathon and, although I wouldn't consider myself an ultra-runner, I recently completed a 50 mile trail race "on a whim" -- after pacing a friend to the 20 mile mark, I decided to finish!
I currently hold the course record for the 1 mile run at the 12-event Austin Fittest I won several 5ks this year overall, and lots of master titles in other distances I also entered the CrossFit open this year . . .. and placed 72nd in my age group (out of a couple thousand) in the southwest region (that sounds terrible, but I was really happy since so many of the strength elements are hard for my scrawny runners body!
