Kristen was always running as part of sports in high school and college, but never enjoyed running on its own. In fact, after two torn ACLs in high school, she never thought distance running would be the right activity for her. As a spectator for her husband's first few races, she fell in love with the atmosphere, and decided not to let an old injury deter her. She started running and completed her first 5k in October 2010, and was instantly hooked. Since that time she has completed over 20 races from 5k to marathon and even a few triathlons. Kristen loves that running and triathlon give her new goals every day, and help her strive to be a better version of herself.
