Stuff About Me:

As you probably know, I love to run.  I have been running since January 2008. How did I start you ask?  Well, my friend Shelley told me she was planning to run the Nike Womens Marahon that fall in San Fransico and asked if I wanted to come along for a fun trip. I was just going to cheer initially, but then I started thinking...I'm turning 30 in December 2008 and I want to do something BIG before my birthday. So, having never run before (ok I was forced to do so a little bit in 8th grade gym, but nothing other than that) I laced up my shoes and set out to go from not running at all to running a full marathon 9 months later.  Since that time I have run 6 full and half marathons in a variety of fun places.  I am super excited to be running the full marathon in Pittsburgh again this year and hope to break my PR which I set in Pittsburgh last time I ran the full.
