How did you get into running?

I began running to lose the weight from my last pregnancy, six years ago.

What inspired you to volunteer as a pacer?

I am an introvert. Pacing is a wonderful way to make new friends because we already have running in common.

Greatest running achievement

Finishing the Badwater 135 in third place for the ladies. That said, it was more of a team achievement than an individual achievement.
