Always an avid backpacker and skier, I became serious about running and in 2011 and have become a competitive age-grouper in running and duathlon. Though I started running on the road, I escape frequently to the trail for its solitude and the community of ultrarunners. The DC area is an enthusiastic and competitive running culture, with my favorite events being North Face DC 50k, Maryland Olympic Duathlon, and Marine Corps Marathon. I'm also a certified RRCA Distance Running Coach, through which I enjoy helping others achieve their goals.
25+ overall or age group podiums, including 3-time age podium/winner of the Maryland Olympic Duathlon (USAT Mid-Atlantic Regional Championships), 2-time age podium North Face DC 50k, and multiple overall wins in the EX2 trail racing series.
