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.

Ski tour w/ Jake: White Pine TH to Maybird Gulch. Skied 3 laps in Maybird and 2 in Red Pine [4500']. Great snow conditions again today. We hadn't been to this area in the winter before so it was fun exploring and scoping out where to ski in the future.

PM - Rainy snowy mess this morning but finally cleared in the afternoon. Ran 12 miles with Jake around Sugarhouse and Holladay, 8:05 pace. Running that far is still pretty hard!

Pretty excited to be an ambassador for Saucony again this year!

Ski tour with Jake in White Pine area - skied Red Baldy and Tri-Chutes (5000ft). I would call it adventure skiing with very variable conditions. I almost fell down an entire slope while skinning but managed to keep myself in a sketchy upside down position until Jake could help me. Pretty typical for me :) Hard to beat the views from up there though!

I have been pretty lazy about updating the blog. It's interesting how it used to be the first thing I did every morning - update, check other people's blogs, comment, be engaged. And now Jake has to remind me once a week to update it so I don't get too far behind. I wonder if it'll change again if I start training again. Maybe it's because I'm trying not to get too motivated...my body is not really ready to do workouts and I am the first to admit that I have exercise-guilt. Anyway, I should try to be update more often :)
