Because I’ve always been told “Dancers don’t run,” I previously had never taken on the challenge of running as a sport. My husband’s completion of the Walt Disney World Marathon in January 2013 inspired me to try running for myself. I signed up for and trained for my first half marathon, the Disney World Half Marathon, and now I’m hooked!As of December 2015 I’ve completed six half marathons, three ten milers, as well as a number of 10ks and 5ks. I have many more races on my bucket list that I hope to eventually add to my running resume.
Outside of running, I am a high school Social Studies teacher. I am currently in my ninth year of teaching.
My husband, Preston, and I were married on July 30, 2011. We currently live in Northern Virginia with our infant son (born in December 2015), and our dog, Riley.
