Places I’ve called home and why I like where I am now:
Williamsburg, VA, Princeton, NJ, PA, Colorado has mountains!

When I started running and what got me started:
I gave up gymnastics in favor of running when I was 13 years old and it was clear I wasn't going to make the Olympics in gymnastics :-). Running is not a judged sport; if you cross the line first, you win.

What does running mean to me:
Running is about mental toughness and having a body I can be proud of (how many women can say THAT?). I enjoy the peacefulness of running alone and the camaraderie of groups.

Running accomplishments:
Mount Washington Road Race, Pikes Peak Ascent

What I like about trail/mountain running:
After running at elevation, I feel so strong anywhere else.

Favorite running trail and why:
Boulder Canyon. Very scenic.

Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
Any and all

Best running experience:
Running at night on a dirt trail with the moon casting shadows

Worst running experience:
Having to race through a cow pasture in high school XC. Those of us with strong kicks had it in our hair!

Neatest thing found on a run:
4 leaf clovers, black bear

Running related bathroom stop story:
In high school XC, I was in the bathroom when the gun went off to start the race. I managed to win the race, but had to tolerate a lot of berating for years afterward.

Running pet peeves:
Running in the city with no bathroom or woods in sight

Something non running related that no one would guess about me:
I have found several 4-leaf clovers in my lifetime. I'm averaging about one/ year.

Other hobbies and interests:
Rock climbing, cycling, swimming, rollerblading, skiing, swing dancing, ballroom dancing, singing and musicals

Other stuff:
I have some expertise in nutrition and shoe-tying technique that I will be happy to share
