Funniest Running Story: During the Pikes Peak Ascent, it was my first experience with “Ultra” type aid stations.  I was so excited about the fact that they had Skittles at the aid stops, that I just grabbed handfuls of them and kept going.  Shortly after, I realized that most of them had melted to my hand and I looked like Rainbow Bright.  Self control….haha.

Quote:  “Run not to beat others, but to beat the voice in your head that tells you you’re not good enough!”

2014 Goal(s): Run a 1:45 1/2 Marathon, Run a sub 4hr Marathon (stretch is to BQ), become a stronger trail runner, encourage as many new runners to get into the sport as I possibly can!
