I am a wife and mother to 6 kids, ranging in ages 9 down to 4 months.
I created this blog so I could write about running, which is one thing thing that defines me as, well …. me.
I began competitive racing when I was 11, specializing in the 100M dash. I had no intentions of running long distances, and only ran cross country as a way to keep in shape. I ended up getting a D1 scholarship to run the 800 M, for Southern Utah University.
It wasn’t until after college and really after having my 3rd child that I discovered my love for the longer distances.
I have since run 5 marathons, with a personal best time of 2:54.04, countless (when I say countless, it is because I don’t feel like counting) halves, with a personal best time of 1:9.58.
More than this, I have discovered a passion for thinking, which has quickly turned into journaling and writing. I have been so blessed to be able to become a regular columnist for The Spectrum, Deseret News and ksl.com, writing about running, fitness, family and whatever my heart desires.
