About Me

I teach high school English and help coach the boys distance team. I love all racing distances from the 5k to the ultra, and find myself constantly switching between distances--even including periodic torturous mile races. In addition to being a Nuun ambassador, I'm a member of the Oiselle Volee. My current goals include: breaking 18 in the 5k, breaking 1:23 in the half marathon, and running a 50-miler and eventually a 100-miler. I've also discovered a love for ultra relay races.

Top Achievements
