Definitely not a high school athlete, I found running in my late 30’s and have been hooked since. Running many local 5k races in the early years, I later fell in love with the half and full marathon distance, having completed seven marathons, including running Boston in 2018. I currently serve as the Vice-President of the Capital Striders Running Club (Des Moines, IA), am coordinator for the Iowa No Meat Athlete running group and am the Iowa Representative for the RRCA (Road Runners Club of America). I love supporting and encouraging my local running community and thrive in my time with them.
