I am a mom of two and didn't get into running until I was 19. I grew up swimming - as well as coaching competitive swimming, teaching swimming lessons and lifeguarding. I cried in elementary school on track and field day when I had to run the 800m event, and walked around the track instead of running, so it's a bit ironic that I love running as much as I do now. With several 5ks and half marathons under my belt, I am currently embarking on training for my first full marathon, with a goal of qualifying for Boston on my first attempt. With increased mileage, I began using Nuun a few years ago to help with better hydration, and it has been a daily staple ever since. Outside of running (and running after my two kids), I enjoy reading, coffee and a good weekend away at a cottage.
