Bio/Current Running Goals/Emphasis:

When I was younger I ran to keep competitive for soccer teams and other competitive sports. At 27, I tore 4 of the 5 ligaments in my left knee and had to hang up my cleats. I started to run as a way to get back into shape. As I started into the local races, and trained a little harder, I started to be more competitive. It wasn’t until I started to train for my first marathon that my times really started to drop. I look forward to continuing my training and strive to become more competitive at local and regional road races, including the USATF championships.
