I have been a competitive runner since I was about 12 years old when I joined my middle school track & field team. When I first joined the sport, I had no idea what I was even doing, nor did I know what events I wanted to do. When I got to high school, I had found my sweet spot in the middle distance events, as well as jumping and competing in heptathlons. I kept growing as an athlete and eventually joined the cross country team and began running distance events by my senior year, and that took me onto running at the collegiate level. I had finished my running career at Eastern Washington University after battling numerous injuries that had left me side-lined and defeated. Roughly six years later, I decided to begin training again and have been doing so injury-free! I am competing in my first half marathon this July, and am currently part of a club running team in Tacoma. I love being a part of the local running community and everything that running embodies. This will be my second time coaching a Fleet Feet Ignite! training group, and I am looking forward to being a part of many more!
