About Me

I'm a #motherrunner who started running road in 2011 when my company offered a local 5k entry. I quickly fell in love with the sport and within the year progressed to my first half marathon. My husband and I started running together and as we added PRs and new distances we found an incredible local running community that increased our passion for the sport even more. In 2016, I decided to try a local triathlon and joined their training program to complete my first Sprint distance. Oh man, that was it, I was hooked. My coach helped me go from not being able to swim 100yds straight to competing in my first Ironman 70.3 less than a year later and it's been an incredible journey ever since. With all the training we added in trail running to reduce impact, add elevation and help prevent burnout. So my years now consist of a rotation of road running in the Winter, Triathlon in Spring and Summer and Trail running in the Fall with maintained cross training year round. Thankful for a solid community, supportive family and incredible products like Nuun to support my love for the sports as I balance training, working full time and being a wife and mother of two active littles!
