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 because I finally decided to run a marathon. I've been surrounded by amazing coaches with so much experience and support to share, it keeps me coming back. I’m inspired and grateful for every runner who has been part of my journey. I look forward to making this the best year yet!
