I started running in the Spring of 2011 because I wanted a new challenge and because I had never been a great runner, as my college rowing coach and teammates could tell you. I trained for and ran the Rock and Roll Virginia Beach 1/2 Marathon as my first race and I have been hooked ever since. Since 2011, I have run 8 half marathons, 2 full marathons, 4 Ragnar Relays (my Ragnar team is AMAZING) and I just registered for my first Triathlon to be complete in May 2014! I love running because I can challenge my self and I can always find new ways to improve.
I have to say that in 2014 alone, I completed a lot of major athletic accomplishments: Completed 2 Triathlons (Including my first one EVER) Ran my first Hood to Coast (with Team NUUN) Ran 2 other Relays (Rangar Northwest Passage and Tennessee) Ran 3 Half Marathons (1 more to go this year) PR'd by 15 minutes in my half in March
Other major athletic accomplishments: Competed 2 marathons in 2013 Just finished my 10th Half Marathon (Richmond 2014) Completed 8 Ragnar Relays
