Favorite Shoe: Mizuno wave rider Size: 9

Age: 31.5 years old

Marital Status: married to Nolan

Family members:
Hunter (3), Bode (8 mo), and Bella (6, the furry family member)

What I do for work:
Physician Assistant

Places I’ve called home and why I like where I am now:
Born in Colorado Springs but I have lived in Germany, Fort Collins, Portland OR, Georgia, and North Carolina. Colorado is definitely home. You can't beat the mountain views and the sunny skies!

When I started running and what got me started:
I started running in college as part of the crew (rowing) team. I signed up for a half marathon and got hooked.

What does running mean to me:
Running is time for me to escape from my busy life and reconnect with myself, or my spouse.

Running accomplishments:
8 marathons. Aiming for 10 before age 30! I got to run Boston last year which was an amazing experience and I can't wait to (hopefully) add the Ascent to my list.

What I like about trail/mountain running:
The views and being outside in nature. There is always something nice to look at and it is hard to get bored when you are constantly running over new terrain.

Favorite running trail and why:
Ute Valley - it is beautiful and close to my house. I also love the Incline and Barr trail (on a non-busy day).

Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
I have never done a trail or mountain race so I will have to wait to answer this. I am signed up for the Ascent this year.

Best running experience:
Boston marathon 2014. I was 28 weeks pregnant so I waddled most of this race but the crowds were amazing.

Worst running experience:
Colorado Marathon 2013 - had the stomach flu but still tried to finish. I only made it 5 miles :(

Neatest thing found on a run:
A lost dog?

Running related bathroom stop story:
Had to pee 6 times during Boston - guess that is what happens when you run a marathon when pregnant!

Running pet peeves:
Lack of awareness of people around you. Aka spitting or shooting snot rockets when someone is right behind you. Also people who listen to music without headphones.

Other hobbies and interests:
Hiking, biking, backpacking, being outside!
