Mountains to Oceans

What is your marathon PR?

3:14 (I think)

Do you have any funny training stories to share?

Funny is the silly things we do to do exactly what Coach Swan (Yoda) tells us to do. Like running laps around a parking lot to get in mileage between kids soccer games.

How long have you been running?

Since I was 15 with a long break to have 3 kids.  Walker, Raynee and Rallie

What running shoes do you wear?

Hoka … Challenger, Clifton

What is your average weekly mileage when you are not training for a marathon?

50 ish… mostly on trails and getting tire on my feet versus worrying about mileage.

What is your weekly mtimileage like when you are training for Boston?

50 ish… I’m actually not training for Boston… using it as training for the ultra races I have planned this year.

Who are your running heroes?

Joan Benoit… her Olympic marathon inspired me.

Who are your local running heroes?

My husband Dave. He gets by with so little talent.

Any other funny story you’d like to share?

Probably something funny about running the trails with our 2 dogs. Their energy is incredible and I laugh every time they jump into creeks and decide to wrestle each other in the middle of a trail.
