How did you hear about Pacifica Runners?
I was asked to join the Pacifica Runners board when the group was being created.
How long have you been a runner?
My first race was Nike Women's half marathon in 2008. It was a raffle, my friend signed me up and I didn't think I would get in.
How did you get into running?
Getting registered for the Nike Women's half marathon made me train and I really enjoyed running.
Do you have a favorite race(s)?
Surfer's Path in Santa Cruz is a great course, along the ocean and not too hilly. My favorite full is the Napa Marathon, which is a point to point.
What are your favorite running trails/routes?
I regularly run from my house to Linda Mar and back for 8 miles. I also enjoy Sawyer Camp/Crystal Springs Trail.
What are your future running goals?
My future goal is to run under a 2 hour half marathon, along with improving my full marathon time.
What do you enjoy most about Pacifica Runners?
I have been on the Pacifica Runners board since the group started, I love meeting new runners, seeing them sign up for a race and the excitement when they finish. It is so great to have a group of friends finish a race and meeting up at the end to celebrate.
Any other cool info about yourself?
I am training for my second half ironman distance triathlon in April, along with the San Francisco full marathon in July. I have two children, I'm in graduate school and travel a lot for work. Pacifica Runners members have been vital to my success and accountability with training.
