"The pain stops when I stop running...then I can smile."
"This is Urology.....Can you hold please?"
City: Colorado Springs State: CO
Favorite Shoe: Brooks Cascadia Size: 9
Age: 38.1 years old
Marital Status: Married
Husband-Jonathan, daughter-Avery (8/14/07), Oscar (the cat dog)
What I do for work:
Full time mother, Director Of Therapy for Stepping Stones Pediatric Therapy, LLC- a healthcare agency that provides occupational, physical and speech therapies to children with special needs.
Places Ive called home and why I like where I am now:
West Springfield, Ma; Ithaca, NY; NYC, NY; Colorado Springs, CO;
Chandler, AZ, Phoenix, AZ. I love Colorado Springs because I get to run with obsessed trail runner types like me that don't fancy running on pavement and only do it as a means to get to the next trail attached to it :)
When I started running and what got me started:
I began running when I was in 7th grade with my Dad at the crack of dawn. He has always been my inspiration for running...a past UPenn track star.....so you ask, "What happened to you, Lindsay?"
I started running hills because I was tired of not getting to see my boyfriend, now husband, Jonathan much. He got me hooked on hills. Guess now I will have to start cycling to see him....
What does running mean to me:
It depends on when you ask me of course...mile 12 on Pikes Peak Ascent....sheer agony. Sunday noon after an incline club long run...Great friends, good health and a way of life. Pleasant insanity......I love being in the midst of God's creation, breathing in the fresh air and putting my muscles to the test.

What I like about trail/mountain running:
Less joint pain with more challenge and the chance to get lost in God's creation. I love the challenge of inclination.....
Favorite running trail and why:
Pike's Peak's Barr trail- where I challenge myself the most. Least favorite- Longs Ranch Road- Baby, Mama, and Papa Bear, enough said. I complain the whole way, right (kevin) Bruno?
Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
Barr Trail Mountain Race - It is the one race that continues to be competitive, while fundraising is one of the main focuses. Great fun to be out there and see the top finishers racing to the bottom and cheer them on.
Best running experience:
Pikes Peak Ascent finish 2001---I shocked the heck out of Jonathan! Conillee says, "Wait, I think that's Lindsay." Jonathan replies, "No, it couldn't be. It's too early."
Worst running experience:
Pike's Peak Ascent 2002. Added 30 mins to my time and Al Alvarez beat me. Enough said.
Neatest thing found on a run:
Friendships. Second neatest thing: Bear and mountain lion foot prints.
Running related bathroom stop story:
No bathroom stops here. I just get to clean my husband's shorts after he takes them....WWWWHHHHHEEEEWWWWWWW!
Running pet peeves:
my husband is almost twice as fast as me, and I have never won an age group award (oops, now I have!). Also, hate that feeling when I am only running because I know I should...monday mornings out on the AZ canals...boring!
Something non running related that no one would guess about me:
I have a turtle named Clyde.
Other hobbies and interests:
Singing, guitar, bible study, volunteering, hiking, complaining about living in Arizona, reading an occasional good book.
Don't move to Phoenix if you like trail running with friends and trails with no rocks.
