What I do for work:
Places Ive called home and why I like where I am now:
Miami, Florida is my home town.
I enjoy living in the mountains because of all of the ways I can do things outdoors and because of the peace away from highly populated metropolitan areas.
When I started running and what got me started:
I started running in the spring of 2015 by going to a friend's run group because I had changed jobs and gym times were not working for me. I had run randomly at other times in my life.
What does running mean to me:
All Valley Half Marathon- my first ever- in under 2 hours.
Aspen Backcountry Marathon in August 2016 and 2017.
Moab Trail Marathon in November 2017.
Two Rock and Roll Denver half marathons in 2016 and 2017 with a better time in 2017.
What I like about trail/mountain running:
being with nature and appreciating the human body's abilities
Favorite running trail and why:
Sunnyside Trail, Aspen CO. I remember the sun coming up on the cold morning in August when I was running towards Sunnyside Trail to start my first marathon, the man from out of town that asked me how many marathons I had done and i said it was my first (he had over 20 marathons) and the work and sense of accomplishment that led up to that day.
Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
Moab Trail Marathon because it is so beautiful and brutal
Best running experience:
Grand Canyon Rim to River to Rim in April 2017 with friends and all of the adventurous people along the way
Worst running experience:
Moab Trail Marathon. I had no idea how technical and tough it would be as I pushed for a PR and barely held my run form together for the last mile
Neatest thing found on a run:
a neck gator that has since gone on many adventures with me
Something non running related that no one would guess about me:
Ballet was my passion as a kid
Other hobbies and interests:
everything about my kids' lives, road cycling, swimming, uphill skinning/skimo, cross-country skiing, volunteering, doing something for another person in need each week is a goal.
My favorite food might be peanut butter! Ironman is my next goal. My current favorite books: Peak, How Great Companies Get Their Mojo from Maslow by Chip Conley and The Well Built Triathlete by Matt Dixon.
