Places Ive called home and why I like where I am now:
Miami, Fl native, I used to love it there and then I moved here (military brat) and after many years of hating it, when I started running I started loving Colorado Springs!
When I started running and what got me started:
I first ran in cross country in high school to avoid going to PE, and then 2 years later I started again for weight loss, and then stopped caring about weight loss and cared more about just running!
What does running mean to me:
Running is my sanity.
I've run 4 marathons: Colfax, Denver RnR, Kalamazoo, and Chicago. I've also run 2 halfs, the Bolder Boulder, and a handful of 5ks.
What I like about trail/mountain running:
Not just anyone can do it!
Best running experience:
Getting popsicles at mile 20 of a very miserable and hot marathon.
Neatest thing found on a run:
A lacrosse ball?
Running related bathroom stop story:
During my first marathon at Colfax, I was at around mile 7 and at the portapotty, and I guess I was in such a rush that I forgot to lock the door. A COP opens the door. I scream. He screams and apologizes from the next stall over. At that point I didn't really care, but it sure scared me!
Running pet peeves:
People who take up the whole trail while walking next to you and don't give room for people to go through!
Something non running related that no one would guess about me:
I'm an EMT! And Spanish was my first language.
Other hobbies and interests:
Drinking beer.. and I also do this Brazilian martial art called capoeira.
Currently training to do the Triple Crown Series, I'll be doing the ascent for the first time!
