Location: Boulder, CO.
Running: Eugene Half Marathon
I hail from Boulder, Colorado, a running mecca! I started running when I was 20ish years old as a way to get fit. I am an opera singer and music teacher and have three children, 14, 13 and 11. Over the past three years, I have been training with Revolution Running in Boulder. Running with a running group has made running a major part of my life instead of a minor part. We all ran the Eugene marathon or half last year as a group trip and we all loved it so much that we are coming back this year! I also run every Wednesday evening with a large group of Boulder runners at a local running store, Flatirons Running. The race was an amazing experience. Being in Prefontaine’s hometown was inspirational and walking around the town of Eugene was incredible. I can’t wait to go back! I just finished the Chicago Marathon and have suffered some injuries this last year so I’m going to run the half this year. It would be an honor and a privilege to serve as a Eugene ambassador. Thank you for your consideration.
