About Us

I was a runner in High School, a sprinter, that is.  If you asked me back then if I would ever run a marathon I would have just laughed at you. 

It wasn't until I moved to Virginia for my job that I actually got involved in a running group.  Running groups are great motivation and they encourage me to do so much more than what i thought i could ever do. I've run several half marathons and full marathons and recently completed my first Ultra! 

In addition to being a runner, I am a Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, and Tennis Player. I love inspiring people to live a healthy lifestyle. I also love to travel. That is why I enjoy going to Destination Races. That lets me do two things I love at once:Traveling and Running! It doesn't get much better than that! The only thing that makes it better, is having my family to support me in all that I accomplish.

It wasn't until I ran Disney's Royal Family 5K that I became interested in running races. I continued to cheer for my sister at her "big" races until I worked up enough courage to run my first half marathon, and then my very first marathon.  I love destination races, Disney of course is my favorite but I have also found comfort and joy in running smaller races.

In addition to being a Disney lover, I am a Labrador lover, a Teacher, and a Writer.  I write for various magazines and newspapers and am the author of a fashion column called Fashionably Fit.
