I started running in 2001 to help lose the baby fat from my 6th child. I soon learned I had a new love and passion. It was for running, racing, and self improvement. I have since run over 20 races and my favorite distance is a marathon. I was out of commission for about 6 months in 2003 due to a torn and herniated disk in my back. I was told I would never run again. 4 of those races I ran were after that diagnosis, one (a marathon) was a personal record by over 10 minutes.

I did 8 marathons in 2005 and 3 this year (the Salt Lake Marathon, the Mayor's Midnight Marathon in Anchorage and the St. George marathon). I am dedicated to New Balance shoes.

I love the example my running sets for my children and their friends. My 5-year-old loves to run and has done a few races with me already. My oldest child has just started running with me also. Even my husband has agreed to run with me.

I am a stay at home mom. In my spare time I enjoy camping, hiking, running, photography, and playing on the computer. I have built my own family web site and manage the web site for the Valley of Fire Marathon. I like stepping out of my comfort zone and exploring things that will challenge me mentally and physically.

I've taken up cycling as a new sport in my attempt to do an Ironman, which is my next goal.
