sport: running

I'm a Graphic Designer who spends her time off the clock training for marathons and triathlons, inspiring friends and conquering challenges. In 2012, I was just a recreational runner_running only when it was sunny. Ha, when I look back on then, I'm still shocked at how far I've come. After 3 marathons, 6 half marathons, 3 triathlons (and many other shorter distance races) I'm preparing for Boston Marathon 2016 and IronMan Lousiville 140.6 _ also in 2016. I'm a lover of the outdoors. On my "off/resting" days, I enjoy spending time with my husband. We usually hike trails, kayak or easy country cycle rides. I guess you could already say I spread #nuunlove by inspiring others that there are no limits. I encourage the many collegiate-friends at our corporate fitness center that we all come from a certain starting point and anything is possible. My current challenge: getting over the fear of water. To overcome this, I've made the commitment to train for an IronMan. #Nolimits

accomplishments:

-Received acceptance to run the 2016 Boston Marathon_so exciting! -Placing in age groups or overall genders for 15/25 races in the past two years. -Completing a marathon in much higher altitude (Montana _ so beautiful!) than where I'm from. smile -Cycling a 100 miles when I just started to cycle 2 months prior. -Setting much faster running PRs in 2015 compared to 2014.
