EDUCATED FITNESS LOVER, ULTRARUNNER, AND MOM

These weren't always the words I used to describe myself.

I struggled with body image issues most of my life which negatively impacted my ability to love myself. I was forced down a path I didn’t want. I didn’t know I was allowed to choose me. 

After, I woke up one morning and realized I’d had enough. I needed to choose something for myself, so I went for a run.

 

The world stood still for the first time in my life.

I was able to collect my thoughts. The feeling was invigorating. I ran again the next day, and the next day, and in building this habit of daily movement, and I started changing. 

I found myself regularly out there on the trail.

I became a more balanced, happier, healthier version of me. 

I fell in love with myself and my body, and was able to create a life I chose. 
 

Today, I continue to pursue my passion for fitness. I am an avid runner, a single mom to a wonderful boy, and an active member of the running community in Bend, Oregon.

In two years, I went from running zero miles to running a 100-mile marathon. I had no idea how much I would accomplish with that first run, but I am so glad I took that step.

 

After achieving my 100-mile goal, I decided it was time for a new chapter in life and began training in how to encourage and coach others on their own fitness journey. I especially love helping people who are new to their own fitness and running journeys. 

 

Today I love to empower others, from beginners to those with more experience, and help them see just how amazing they are.
