Short Term Goals
Boston Marathon - For my second Boston Marathon, I would like to have a better race experience (last time I slowed down a lot in the second half). I want to beat my previous time of 4:08:59.
Long Term Goals
After Boston, I want to focus on improving my 5k and 10k times. I want to better my 5k in particular, since it is my oldest PR (19:38 in 2013).

I grew up in Madison, AL and ran for fun throughout middle school and high school. I was on the rowing team at Ithaca College, and I graduated with a film degree in 2007. I started working as a video editor at DreamMaker Entertainment in 2008, and I also ran my first marathon that year (Rocket City). In 2009 I met the "Crazy Girls", a group of women who run around Madison in the early morning hours. They are wonderful friends and great training partners. I have a chocolate lab named Silva. Over the past few years I've been training more seriously, and I really enjoy being a part of Huntsville's running community. I have been a member of the Fleet Feet Racing Team since 2013, and it is an honor to run and train with such a great group of people. This year I'm looking forward to another fun, successful year of running and racing!
