About Me

I am very enthusiastic about fitness. I have always stayed active, but in college I got into running trail and road for varied distances. This love for running turned into longer competitive runs after I moved to Colorado, competing in multiple half marathons and full marathons. I have coupled my love for running into cross training in swimming and biking to compete in multiple triathlons in recent years. This cross training and variety in training led me to explore how CrossFit could benefit me in other competitive arenas, like obstacle races. Crossfit training has given me the complete fitness to compete at a higher level and do things I couldn’t have done before. I wanted to share this experience with young people which led me to get my CFL1 in September 2015 and help develop the KidFit program at CrossFit DNR. I have also started participating in GoRuck challenges. I have done several light events and Tough events. I have also completed the 50 Mile Star Course where my team came in 3rd. If you are curious about Rucking go to www, to see all about this great community.
