Personal:

I am originally from Knoxville, TN and moved to SLC with Jake in 2010. I started racing in 2011 and had some great success before a major injury hit me in July 2012. I had athletic pubalgia surgery in May 2013...then again in Sept 2014 and am still trying to get back to my old self. Although running is my true passion, I love doing pretty much anything active outdoors - backcountry skiing, backpacking, biking, etc. 

I've been running for the Saucony Team since 2011. I enjoy representing the brand and really do believe they make the best shoes :)

I work as a Quality Engineer for BD Medical in Sandy.

Have not been good about updating the blog lately...gotta get back into it!

AM - Strength training for 40 minutes.

PM - 4 miles with Jake at 8:30 pace.

Plan for the next few months (while it's so cold and smoggy) is to split exercise between skinning/skiing and running. They are both great workouts and I think this will get me in very good shape by the summer. It worked really well in 2011 :-)

AM - 13.4 miles in Holladay, 8:15 pace. Stopped about 4 miles into the run to check out an open house then continued further into Holladay until we realized it was going to be way farther then anticipated. I haven't run this far in YEARS, but it is good to know that I am getting stronger despite not running much - skinning is really helping!

AM - Ski tour with Jake. 4 laps in Mill D - Short Swing. We haven't skied in this area before but it will no doubt become one of our go-tos when the avalanche danger is high for the low-angle tree skiing. Skinned 6100ft and am exhausted now!
