sport: Running

I am an avid Brooks ID Elite runner who works full time as a physician Assistant in a busy Emergency room. When I am not working the wee hours of the morning I am training, hydrating, eating or sleeping. I picked up running 8 years ago after never running in HS or college. In 2009 I ran my first marathon, won and went to Boston. I have continued to grow as an athlete and person. I am one of the founding members an elite women's race team in our area, Bellingham Distance Project. I spend a lot time training with teammates and we compete as an XC team annually. When not training I enjoy time with my husband and our two dogs.
