Location: Spokane, WA.
I am originally from San Diego, CA where I grew up playing basketball & soccer. In 2012 I decided to give running a try and since then I have competed in 12 full marathons, 6 half marathons and numerous 10k & 5k races. It has been a goal of mine ever since I began racing to qualify for the Boston Marathon. I was able to reach my goal in September of 2015 at the Tunnel Light Marathon in North Bend, WA. I am a part of a local running club in Spokane, WA and am an Assistant Coach of a local Elementary school program that allows kids to participate in a cross-country program through their school. I enjoy sharing my experiences, what I have learned and passion for the sport of running with people of all ages and abilities. Running has taught me to set goals for myself and has shown me I can overcome any obstacle I face to meet those goals. I hope my passion can inspire someone else to find his or her passion for running too!
