I live every day with a "grab life by the balls" mentality. I'm a savage for a challenge, in love with my cat Todd, and grew up eating ice cream after dinner every night. It's hard to pick a favorite flavor, but if I had to it'd be mint cookies n' cream. I was not always a runner-- a sucker for a good turkey trot, I felt being able to run three miles was a fair test of fitness. After college I decided to kick it into another gear. With a new found focus on my personal health and wellness I trained for my first marathon-- the Vermont City Marathon-- in 2013. Finishing sub four hours, stronger than I ever expected, I became hooked on running, setting goals and chipping away at them day after day. CrossFit, cycling, spin class, stand up paddle boarding, skiing, and [sometimes, not enough] yoga, are also a part of the equation, but running remains the through line. My spirit animal is a mountain lion. Their power, intention, and physical strength within the animal kingdom mirrors the balance of body, mind, and spirit in the human realm.
