sport: running

In the spring of 2009 I went for a run, I haven't stopped running since. What began as a challenge from my little sister to run a half marathon, quickly became a quest for a Boston Marathon qualifying time. After a few years of accumulating BQ's and chasing PR's, my focus shifted to trail running. I still love to race and pace half and full marathons on the road, but my passion is ultra running on the trails. My favorite distance is the 50 mile race. A few years ago I started pacing races. I love helping people reach their goals. I know how hard they have worked to get to the starting line and how crucial it is for them to stay focused in order to get that PR or BQ. I love seeing people in that raw state, usually between miles 18-25, after the fun has ended and the work has begun. Pacing allows me to be an observer and a positive voice, reminding people to hang on to their goals. I learn so much from these experiences and I am continually amazed and inspired by the human spirit.
