Race Times

Growing up I actively played just about every sport. So when soccer ended in college, I needed a way to continue fulfilling my competitive spirit. My cousin Billy suggested training for a 1/2 marathon benefiting breast cancer research (both of our moms are survivors) and before I knew it I was logging long training runs on the treadmill (it was Winter in Minnesota). The race was in February 2009 and I haven’t stopped racing since. I’ve been fortunate enough to run in some amazing cities and hope to run a race in every state. I’ve covered hundred of miles for charities and even encouraged a few friends and my mom to start running. It has been a life-changing experience and I am so thankful to have two strong legs to carry me over the finish line.

One of the items on my bucket list is to run a race in every state (Marine Corps Marathon didn’t count). Nine down, 41 to go!

Below are my race times and the cities I’ve ran in. The races in pink are extra special because those are the ones I crossed the finish line with my mom at my side.
