About Me

I am a wife to Mike, momma to Kenley and Sophia, and teacher to 29 usually-hilarious 4th graders. I live in Northern Colorado and love its many days of sunshine and occassional blizzard. I started running in June of 2011, about 5 months after giving birth to my youngest daughter. What started out as one race to motivate me to get rid of my post-baby cellulite, turned into what I hope is a life-long passion for running.

You can read about how I started running (consequently roping Erin into this whole obsession right along with me) here.
