I first started running in college because it was good exercise, but I never saw myself as a serious runner. I had no idea in the next 10 years, running would change my life. I found my running family in Portland. I love running road, trail, relays, and half marathons. I started traveling for races and building community everywhere I went. I joined Portland Fit last year because I finally decided to run my first marathon. The coaches had so much experience and support to share, it kept me coming back. I’m inspired and grateful for every runner who has been part of my journey. I look forward to making 2018 the best year yet!
