Brief Bio:

I received a degree in Exercise Science in 1999 from Wichita State University. I have worked as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor since 1998 and began running consistency approximately 7 years ago. I enjoy running all distances, but particularly love the challenge of the ultra. My favorite distance is the 50k and my favorite race, Mountain Mist. I enjoy helping others reach their fitness goals and improve their quality of life. I have helped many people train for and complete races of all distances and recently began working with Fleet Feet Sports by coaching for their training programs. I have been married to my husband, Tony since 1994 and have two children, Courtney and Brandon who are very active in sports.

Short Term Goals:

To improve in both the 50 mile and 50k distance, specifically finishing Mountain Mist in 6 hours in 2010. I would also like to complete at least one more hundred miler in 2010.

Long Term Goals:

Continue to improve on times in ultras, eventually running some of the larger races, like Western States and Hardrock. I would also like to get more involved with helping Fleet Feet continue to grow the sport of running. I want to spend more time coaching beginning runners and helping them reach their goals.
