One of my closest friends suggested we run the Capitol 10K in April 2010 and I agreed and started training. I thought it would be a challenge, I’d walk half of it, but then I could say I did it.  I never thought I’d be where I am today.

I’m a mom of 2 and one sweet chihuahua named Peanut.  I’ve lived in Austin since January 1999 and I love it here!  I grew up in a small Texas town and moved out on the 1st day I could move into my dorm at SWT (now Texas State.) I still have some great friends from my hometown and I was lucky in many ways to grow up with such stability.

I have one grandparent left – my Grandma Mac.  My other 3 grandparents might not be on this Earth anymore, but they are always with me.  I think about my grandparents so much when I’m running.  I feel like I can finally see in me what they could see.  It’s very clear when I’m out on the road.
