Growing up I was active in sports (basketball, volleyball, etc.) but heading into college and early in my career, I focused less on taking care of myself and more on paying the bills. A life altering diagnosis changed how I wanted to live should I get a second chance. I signed up for my first 5k just hoping to finish it. My goals increased with my confidence and ability. A few years later and about 250 pounds lighter, I registered and completed my first half marathon! I like to feel challenged and love to try "out of the box" experiences. I seem to gravitate towards obstacle course racing but I also enjoy aerial arts, mermaid fitness, ziplining, skydiving, and kayaking (with my dog especially).
