Age: 34.8 years old

Marital Status: Single

What I do for work:
Middle School Teacher, and Real Estate Agent at Keller Williams

Places I’ve called home and why I like where I am now:
Grew up in Aurora, went to college in South Dakota. Ended up in Colorado Springs for a job. I enjoy all of the outdoor opportunities of the area.

When I started running and what got me started:
5th grade. A teacher encouraged me to get into running.

What does running mean to me:
Discipline, achievement, healthy lifestyle, and pushing myself everyday.

Running accomplishments:
Running the Bolder Boulder for 15 years. Creating a running club at my school for my middle schoolers and getting them passionate about running. I ran my first marathon in June of 2014-(Grandma's in Duluth, MN). I will end 2014 with 4 marathons and states under my belt, and would like to do one in every state.

What I like about trail/mountain running:
The peace and scenery of the trail, and the great people that you meet.

Favorite running trail and why:
Barr Trail. The scenery and width of the trail.

Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
I'm still new to this type of running, so I would say the first race of the winter series at Cheyenne Mountain State Park, because that was my first taste of trail running, and I was hooked ever since.

Best running experience:
The Bolder Boulder every year. I always look forward to that race. My second would be the Chicago Marathon. Great crowd support.

Worst running experience:
The Race to the shrine. I wasn't prepared for the steep up-hill race at that time. I think I would do just fine if I tried it now.

Neatest thing found on a run:
Vintage Kirby vacuum.

Running related bathroom stop story:
Having to use snow as tp during a long run bathroom emergency.

Running pet peeves:
Walkers or slow runners who take up the entire sidewalk and won't move to the right.

Other hobbies and interests:
Hiking, and traveling.

Other stuff:
continuing with my 50 state marathon quest, and possibly getting into triathlons.
