How long have you been a runner? I found the trails 3 years ago at the suggestion of a coworker. Before that fateful day, I was a heptathlete, shot putter, triathlete, and competitive weight lifter but running was not my priority because pavement didn’t inspire me.

Happiest running moment: Running with my husband, Matt, on the way to finishing my first 100.

Proudest running accomplishment: Running my first 40 miler and winning the race. I didn’t know I was in the lead until I finished

Favorite distance: I’m still figuring that one out

Favorite race: Bandera 100K

If you could lace up your shoes and go for a run anywhere in the world right now, where would you go? Any trail on any mountain that I haven’t seen before

Goals: Keep running and improving

When I’m not running I’m… Skydiving, engineering, thinking about running

Uphills or Downhills? Uphills for the challenge, downhills for the adrenaline

I am a Rocky Mountain Runner because… Mountains are best when shared!
