Personal Bio:
I originally started running just to stay fit after playing tennis throughout high school.  As you can probably tell from the other athlete’s bios, I am nowhere close to the strongest runner, but I have a real passion for the sport.  I love all the people I’ve met through running and really enjoy the running community in the Kansas City area.  I hope to continue to drop my times, particularly with the long-term goal of breaking the 2:50 marathon mark and to run a marathon in all fifty states.
