Places I’ve called home and why I like where I am now:
Moved here from Mississippi by the grace of God!!!! I am so happy to be here. I love the many running opportunities, the mountains, the sunshine, and the people.

When I started running and what got me started:
I ran cross country and track in high school and college. I love the way it makes me feel and the people I get to know.

What does running mean to me:
It feels like what heaven must be like. I feel free and uninhibited. It's like I leave my problems behind me.

Running accomplishments:
Not many. I am a recreational class runner as far as my ability. I do love a challenge though.

What I like about trail/mountain running:
The challenge. The scenery.

Favorite running trail and why:
Monument. I'm terrible with directions and I know I won't get lost

Best running experience:
The sense of accomplishment of running at altitude and in steep terrain. This is so different from the flat lands of Mississippi

Pyrite and a deer while running on a trail here in CS in around 1992

Ballroom dancing
