Running Highlights

As of 2012 I’ve completed a total of 89 races which consist of 10k’s, 12k’s, 18k’s, 25k’s, 30k, 50k, 50 half marathons, and 31 marathons. I have been running for four years and thankfully I have never been injured. I was inspired by my cousin in seeing how much one can do and push their body to be able to go beyond the distance. I also realized I wanted to be more active and live a healthier lifestyle when I realized my mother was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and didn’t want to put myself at risk. Running has given me the opportunity to meet and inspire many other runners as well as be inspired by my fellow running friends I have made. As a runner I also like to give back to the running community and volunteer my time at various races as well as helping out friends by crewing, pacing, and being a supporter. I’ve had many highlights and all races have been memorable to me and close to my heart. In 2010 I managed an overall Marathon PR by 37 minutes after completing a triple running event. I also completed my first 50k by challenging myself to run beyond a marathon distance. In 2011 I kept improving and challenging myself by improving my overall marathon and half marathon time and getting PR’s.

Why do you love to run?

I love to run because it makes me feel free, alive, energized, and takes me beyond my limits.
