I started playing soccer at age five. I played on club teams and at the varsity level in high school all four years. I went on to play for the Bellevue University Women’s Soccer Team (NAIA) during college. I didn’t start running until I was in my thirties when my sister asked me to do a marathon with her in 2014. After that, I started running a lot of local races then decided I wanted to try to qualify for the Boston Marathon. I hired a coach in early 2019 and then qualified for Boston at CIM later that year. I had the privilege of running the Boston Marathon in 2021 and 2022 with my running partner and fiancé, Craig Halverson.
I enjoy shorter distances and would love to better my times in the mile, 5k, and 10k. I would also like to run a half marathon in every state!
