Endurance athlete, 62 years old— marathon canoe/kayak, Ultra trail runner, triathlete, cyclist, cross country ski racer.... I love the outdoors and staying strong as I age. The sports change from time to time, but my passion for being active, fit, and healthy is always present. As a career, I am a Full time collegiate track and field/cross country coach for both men and women. I love sharing my passion for sport and a healthy lifestyle with young athletes, as well as with adults who are just getting into the sport as I volunteer at our local Fleet Feet Store with the couch to 5K and marathon training programs. I am an ambassador for UCAN, Janji Sports, and Hartford Marathon Foundation. I love animals, and volunteer as a foster home for CT Greyhound Association- we currently have our 16th foster living with us!
