I am a 2nd grade teacher and I have two cats - Lola and Mateo. I've been teaching for 10 years and enjoy working with my students

I've been running for 10 years and have run races ranging from a 5k to a 50K. To date I’ve run 168 races which includes 2 ultra marathons, 8 marathons, and 74 half marathons. I have a goal to run a half marathon in each state. Therefore, half of the half marathons have been in various states. I am on state #43 and hope to complete this goal in the next couple of years (depending on the pandemic).

My mom had a stroke earlier this year and had Covid in August (she is doing fine) and it made me appreciate so much more. I know it sounds cliche but really life is short!
