Always an avid backpacker and skier, I became serious about running later in life. I have since become a competitive regional age-grouper in running and duathlon, including overall wins in 10-mile trail events, three age group podiums at the USAT Mid-Atlantic Regional Duathlon Championships, and two age group podiums at the North Face DC 50k. I started running on the road, and have continued with double digit road marathons, including all US Majors by completing 2017 NYC, 2018 Boston, and 2018 Chicago. But I love trail running more for less crowds, better views, and the ultrarunning community; my sights are now focused on longer trail distances. I'm also a certified RRCA Distance Running Coach, through which I enjoy helping others achieve their goals.
