Location: Eugene, OR.
I grew up in Southwest Portland and attended Beaverton High School, where I absolutely did not run. I traded in my beaver tail for webbed feet in 2008 by becoming an Oregon Duck. It was here, in Tracktown, USA that I fell in love with the sport and the city of Eugene. I’m involved with the OSWIM Team in Training Chapter, a fundraising organization for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I also love me a good ol’ pub run (beer and running are great friends, especially in Eugene). I enjoy convincing friends to register for their very first 5ks, and adored coaching the 2015 Holt Elementary Girls On the Run Team. My favorite distance is 13.1, but 26.2 is a great challenge to stride towards every so often. I can’t wait for the 2017 Eugene Half!
