City: Calhan State: CO
Favorite Shoe: Brooks Adrenaline Size: 7.5
Age: 34.6 years old
Marital Status: Married
Husband, 4 dogs, 2 cats, 4 chickens, two steers, and 2 mini donkeys.
What I do for work:
I am an administrative secretary at the high school level.
Places Ive called home and why I like where I am now:
I was born on the Air Force Academy but was raised in San Diego. I went to college in Oregon but moved to Austin, Texas for job experience before returning to CO.
When I started running and what got me started:
I started running in 2009 because I was living in a dog kennel/boarding facility and only had access to a "real" shower at the gym. Because I wanted to do more than shower while I was at the gym I started running and quickly became addicted.
I have completed 5 half marathons and one full marathon. I recently qualified for the Pikes Peak Ascent which is a goal I have been working towards for over 1.5 years! I am beyond excited but very nervous.
Favorite running trail and why:
It changes. I go through spurts where I love the openness of the Paint Mines and then I prefer more shaded trails like Section 16 in Black Forest. As long as I am out in nature I am a happy girl.
Worst running experience:
I experienced heat stroke during one of my long runs after moving to the prairie out East. I was so used to running through parks that had shade and water and there isn't either on the prairie. I did manage to finish my run but I paid dearly for it!
Running pet peeves:
People who launch snot rockets without checking to see if it's clear.
