I was born and raised in Minnesota. I went to college in Wisconsin and obtained a degree in Manufacturing Engineering. I played College Volleyball for two years and shortly after ending my volleyball career I started running to stay in shape and quickly it became one of the most important parts of my life. I have always had a strong drive to race smarter and train harder. I have run 14 Half Marathons and many other races along the way. The Half Marathon distance is my favorite race distance and has been my main focus for the last few years. I am excited to be apart of your Marathon training and will do my very best to be a constant boost of encouragement and training partner!
