Running became a passion of mine a few years back and it did not take me long before cross training took me into the triathlon world as well. Since I picked up running a few years ago I have completed a number of half marathons, 20ks, 10ks as well as a half ironman. It has been a fun running journey. I am proud of everything I have accomplished so far and I look forward to accomplishing more.
I have not always considered myself a runner. I briefly ran track in high school for one season; but other then that I grew up riding horses. I rode up until a few years ago when unforeseen circumstances turned my life upside down. It was at this time when I discovered running; and it became something that was important to me.
Finishing the Ironman Timberman 70.3 is one of my favorite accomplishments. The whole journey was an absolutely amazing and humbling experience. I can’t wait to train for another half ironman and I hope to one day do a full ironman!
For right now though I am in graduate school. So for the moment school and work takes up a great deal of my time. I still manage to fit in runs here and there; but not necessarily the longer milage that I would like to be doing. And with school keeping me so busy I have been keeping my focus away from races; even though I love to run races! Instead running is my stress relief!
In addition to running I also enjoy playing fetch with my golden retriever Finely and cooking with my boyfriend.
