Places I’ve called home and why I like where I am now:
All over the place, but grew up in the burbs of Cincy. I've also lived in NY, MO, TX, AL, VA, and thankfully CO. Colorado is definitely home for me--waking up to the mountains everyday keeps me going.

When I started running and what got me started:
5th grade. I always loved being outside and running is so simple and pure that I stuck with it.

What does running mean to me:
A breath of fresh air...it's my coffee in the morning, my quiet time, my therapy

Running accomplishments: View my Pikes Peak Ascent/Marathon results
Have some trophies and medals, but the biggest accomplishment for me is sticking with it even when it's easier to crawl back under the covers and sleep in

What I like about trail/mountain running:
Being out there alone, but feeling like it's exactly where I'm supposed to be.

Favorite running trail and why:
Do I have to pick just one?? The Pikes Peak ultra loop--some of the best trails in the area all in one course.

Other hobbies and interests:
Mountain biking, hiking, climbing, skiing, snowshoeing, reading
