Primarily a trail ultrarunner and triathlete, in 2017 I completed both my first 100 mile trail race and Iron distance event. I’ve now run two Gazelle Girl Half Marathons and once paced the 8:00 pace group. Being part of this event is so significant because of the focus on women becoming stronger together through kinship with running. Representing and being part of this unique experience is emotional and enforces so much inner strength for our running community!! My greatest joy is to inspire women to work their hardest to see their goals through and to get everyone excited about being there.
