Places Ive called home and why I like where I am now:
Arizona and Colorado. I love it here in Colorado Springs because I am hooked on sunshine, mountains, clean air and a great community.
When I started running and what got me started:
Started running in my early twenties to shed *ahem* a few pounds I had gained in college. My first running accomplishment was jogging the 1/2 mile from my college dorm to the recreation center. It didn't take long to realize that running was far better for the body and soul than an aerobics class. I built up my base from there and have managed to make it to the top of Pikes Peak a few times.
What does running mean to me:
Mostly, running provides a way to maintain (or sometimes find...) my sanity. But it also means: a chance to relax, pray, think, breathe fresh air, push my limits, and most of all to challenge myself.

What I like about trail/mountain running:
I love being out in God's creation, the challenge of the hills and mountains and getting away from the rush of 'real life' for a while.
Favorite running trail and why:
Waldo Canyon is one my favorite trails. The view of Pike's Peak at the top of the lollipop is incredible; looking forward to running it again .... someday.
Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
Pikes Peak Ascent/Marathon.
Neatest thing found on a run:
The Incline Club, who gave me the courage to train for and run the Pikes Peak Marathon for the first time!
You'll never know if you don't try.
