This spring I will celebrate my 8th Runniversary!! I would love to ring in that accomplishment as a pacer at the Gazelle Girl Half Marathon.

I started running after cheering my cousin on to finish her first 25k in 2010 and haven’t stopped running since (with the exception of a few weeks off after having had babies).

I never in a million years imagined I’d be a runner. In fact, I thought running was a form of punishment. Now, I can’t imagine my life without it. It has literally infiltrated every aspect of my life. I run with friends and family, I participate in various races, volunteer at running events, have been on a few race committees, even started my own non-profit organization that holds an annual fun run!!

I love sharing my passion for running with others and I especially love setting an example for my kids of what a healthy lifestyle looks like!
