Financial Data Sales

Places I’ve called home and why I like where I am now:
Guatemala, Los Angeles, San Fran, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Tennessee, Jamaica (West Indies). I am enjoying COS, it's beauty, it's people and living in an outdoor paradise. One where I can step outside my door for a run and have a "rave run" any day

When I started running and what got me started:
I was a competitive runner in high school and after a long break, I began running again in 2004 to lose weight. In doing so I joined Team in Training and it was then that I found the fuel to my passion after our close friends lost their 12 yr old daughter to lymphoma. I dedicate one event a year to TNT and Alexa.

What does running mean to me:
Freedom from everything and time for ME!

Running accomplishments:
NYC Marathon, Chicago Marathon, Miami ING Marathon and more Disney Halfs than Mickey Mouse

What I like about trail/mountain running:
Having moved here from SoFla a couple of months ago, I appreciate the diversity, challenge and sights of mountain/trail running.

Best running experience:
Having completed various marathons in the company of "honored teammates" who are cancer survivors and even those who were actively fighting the disease. After witnessing their passion to live, I gained a whole new perspective. One I cherish.

Other hobbies and interests:
Triathlons, cycling, traveling, and WINE! ;)

Other stuff:
Would like to finish the 2012 Ascent and finish an Ironman in 2014
