Other Disciplines: Road Cat 3
Birth Year: 1979
City Of Residence: Augusta
Favorite Race: I can't choose just one favorite, but if I must, it would be the Trans Rockies 6 day trail run in CO. It's the only race where you get to hang out with super cool athletes from all over the world for 6 days of camping. It's extremely challenging and competitive, but so much like a trail running camp. All of my favorite races are events that force me to work beyond what I know I can already do.

Biggest Accomplishments

In one year, I won all 4 of the Dances with Dirt 50 milers. But mostly that my body was strong enough to do all 4 in a year!


If you're not having fun, it's not being done right! Running form, where you run, the events you choose and who you run with can bring so much joy to the sport!

If I'm Not Competing...

Being active with friends or reading multiple books.

One Thing You Don't Know About Me:

I have conversations with animals.

For those really hard miles on tired legs… “There’s nothing you’re feeling now that a finish line won’t cure”
