I’m originally from Texas, but I now enjoy living in the Midwest and taking advantage of all four seasons to get outside and explore. I love to hike, kayak, swim, and cross-country ski. I’ve been running since I was 13, and I’ve run 6 marathons and 9 half marathons. I’ll be running the Boston Marathon for the second time in 2020. Here’s a picture of me at about mile 24 of the Chicago Marathon feeling terrible. I also like to read novels, travel, bake pies, organize anything, and hang out with my family (not pictured to protect their privacy).
