Great friend, Stepmom, Educator and Runner….that in a nutshell is who I am.

After graduating from high school in Florida, my family moved to Colorado. I was never a runner. After marrying my husband, I put on a few marital bliss pounds and decided to start running as a way to keep in shape. As I ran through the paths around my house, my mind wandered, I was in tune to all of the nature around me and I was completely at peace. This is when I became a runner. Not only was it a way to stay fit, but it was also a stress reliever. I enjoyed every moment. I decided to start doing races to keep me motivated, and fell in love with the community. Even if I would run solo, there would always be someone else that I knew at the race. Racing is truly a community sport. I was also able to learn race opportunities behind the scenes, and established life long friendships and become part of a true run family.

My run family at HAL Sports has been there for me through so much over the past few years, and I am so proud to be part of the┬áHAL Sports/DNA Vibe Running Team. I would not be the runner, or the person I am today, if it wasn’t for their support.

My HAL is Family, Running, Travel, and Inspiring the Future.
