Long-Term Running Goals:

I love training with others both on road and trail. I also find benefits of running solo when I need to focus and regroup.

Fun fact: Although I prefer to run outside, I don't mind the treadmill for pace accountability and for the blind assumption that I can run really fast. I have a lot of secret treadmill PR's at 0% incline:)

I am a Mormon


I am married to a supportive and driven husband. Together we enjoy geocaching, hiking, camping, reading and playing games with our three rambunctious children.

Aside from running, I am a homemaker and a Mental Health Therapist. Running has given me the ability to better concert my energies between my family, faith and friends.

Goal was to warm up a couple miles then drop the effort 10 seconds per mile going off effort only. I picked a hilly course for this run to practice changing gears and getting a feel of pace vs. effort on hills. Rough first mile dealing with asthma related coughing and didn’t feel encouraged when my Garmin told me my running performance condition was -3. Completed the workout anyway bc I feel like I should feel crappy from Saturday’s workout, so it’s justified to go ahead and plan on feeling that way but get it done regardless. Wasn’t really too hard today especially compared to past Tuesday strength days.
