Age: 50.1 years old
Marital Status: married
1 daughter and 1 hubby.
What I do for work:
Customer service and PR for the Colorado Springs Airport
Places Ive called home and why I like where I am now:
I'm an Air Force Brat so I lived all over. I lived in California the longest but consider Colorado home now. I love the mountains and the slower lifestyle.
When I started running and what got me started:
In 2003 my husband asked if I'd like to cheer him on for the Ascent. I replied "No way, I'll join you instead."
What does running mean to me:
Freedom and sanity from responsiblities!

2003, 2005 & 2006 Ascents; 2004 San Diego Marathon, 2007 Steamboat Marathon and 2008 Phoenix Marathon
What I like about trail/mountain running:
Crazy as it sounds, I love the downhill. It's my chance to let it go.
Best running experience:
2006 Ascent. My boss was at the top yelling for me to get my ass moving so I could get the time I wanted. He even cut the switchbacks so he could stay ahead of me and cheer me on. Oh what a fun way to end the race!
Neatest thing found on a run:
The critters out there.
Running pet peeves:
Runners wearing headphones playing music so loud that I can hear it. How in the heck are they supposed to hear me coming or that I want to pass on a trail?
Other hobbies and interests:
Mentoring for the Leukemia Society Team in Training.
I'd love to have times like the other Kelly Jackson out there. And to think, she's older than me too!
