I have always liked to be active and outside. As a child, I was always on my bike or swimming in the warmer months, and snowshoeing or cross-country skiing in winter. When I got older and went off to school, I played varsity badminton. I participated in a number of mountain bike races and one day I decided I was going to start running. I've had some ups and downs (one resulting in breaking my ankle in the middle of a race) but over the years I have grown to love running. I think the best part is all of the wonderful people I have met!
I am a proud "back of the packer" runner and love to keep challenging myself! This year I am hoping to tackle a trail marathon! Most of my races are between 5k and 21k. I am owned by four rescue cats, and I love to knit and crochet in my spare time.
