About Me

I've been called mad. I've been called brave. I like to think it's a combination of the two. I'm a runner who prefers the distance and the mountains over the short jaunts and the roads. Roads for me are exercise. With trails, i find myself beaming ear to ear without giving it thought. To fly downhill over the most technical rocky, rooty single track fills me with so much joy. Rain or shine, snow or mud, i love to run through the forest like Tinkerbell, then follow it up by eating everything in sight like Hansel & Gretel when they come across the candy house. Oh, to find a candy house in the forest!
