Places I’ve called home and why I like where I am now:
I've lived in Ohio my entire life. I moved to Colorado June 07...best decision I've ever made! I love the mountains, great weather, and all the outdoor activities that Colorado has to offer.

When I started running and what got me started:
Started running around 2003. Great way to hang with my friends and work toward the same goal of training for marathons.

What does running mean to me:
Feeling great (when I'm done) :-)

Running accomplishments: View my Pikes Peak Ascent/Marathon results
I ran the Walt Disney Goofy Challenge January of 2009. My first Pikes Peak Marathon in 2009.

Favorite running trail and why:
Garden of Gods, Ute Valley, Red Rock Open Space, Stratton Open Space, Ute Pass to LRR. Gorgeous scenery.

Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
My favorite trail run is the Aspen Golden Leaf trail run. It is a great time of the year to visit Aspen. My other favorite is the La Sportiva Vail Half Marathon. Both runs offer gorgeous scenery and increible views. Another amazing run is the Ouray Mountain Trail run in the fall...very tough run and again gorgeous scenery.

Neatest thing found on a run:
2 dogs! They were romping around Garden of Gods without an owner. I was able to get one of the dogs (Koko) into my car and return her home safely.

Other hobbies and interests:
Skiing, snowboarding, tennis, mountain biking, yoga
