Places I’ve called home and why I like where I am now:
My favorite "home" is Alaska. Colorado is somewhat new to me--Six years.

When I started running and what got me started:
I started running in the hills of Anchorage, Alaska. It was just the friends that I met up with there.

What does running mean to me:
I have had a lot of struggles with my legs. Lots of surgeries as a young person. Running is freedom and is a privilege that I want to continue to use.

Running accomplishments:
I'm not really a runner. I wish I was more hard core. I've done a marathon and lots of half marathons. I've done Lost Lakes (Alaska) which is 16 miles of trails.

What I like about trail/mountain running:
Uphill

Favorite running trail and why:
Palmer Ridge. There are usually no people

Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
Lost Lake - it's a 16 mile run up and across the mountains south of Anchorage Alaska. It is the most beautiful run ever. Looks like I think Switzerland looks.
