I am a mom of 4, and grandmother of 4, living in Omaha, Nebraska. I started running in 1998, my first marathon was Chicago 2000. I’ve since run 32 marathons, including Boston 2006, 2008, and 2015. I’ve run several 50ks, many 10k’s and half-marathons. Last summer I participated in a 12 hour endurance event and ran 42 miles, a distance record for me! I love to run, swim, lift weights, and practice yoga. I am a certified yoga instructor, and currently teach at the YMCA in my community. Besides running, I enjoy spending time at the beach and babysitting my 4 grandsons. I have a fat cat and a lazy dog who keep me company. My favorite sport (besides running) is baseball! I especially love college baseball and always attend the College Wold Series here in Omaha. My goals for this year are to complete a 50 mile race, run the New York Marathon, and run a Boston qualifying time!
