About Me

I’m a runner who has completed 10 full marathons and 21 half marathons. See my first post for more of the nitty gritty details. But for the short version, after running 4 years of high school cross country, I took a 6 year hiatus before developing a genuine love for running. I ran my first half marathon in 2009 on a dare with less than 2 weeks of training. I don’t have any lofty racing goals; I just like to run and race and see different places. I am a fan of the runcation and I’m learning balance so that the race doesn’t take over the entire vacation.

I’m slightly obsessed with The Ohio State University, to include all things Buckeyes, but most especially Football. I’ll mention now that I’m also an OSU grad. I use a paper planner and enjoy a good cup of coffee. I have a miniature long haired dapple dachshund, Addison Parker.

In addition to running, I have been doing CrossFit since 2013, and practicing yoga since 2012(ish).
