Competitive Trail Runner
When I turned 40, I ran my first marathon – the New York City Marathon. I missed qualifying for Boston by 3 minutes and was so happy I did not have to run another marathon! I compare it to childbirth. About 9 months later you forget the pain. Flash forward 15 years – I am an active distance runner with a penchant for trails. I love traveling to new places to run. It is like a vacation packed with guilt-free eating.
Favorite Trail Race: The DuPont Forest Trail Marathon – Children dressed up as woodland fairies and handed out m&m’s on silver platters.
Favorite Race: The Wrightsville Beach Half Marathon 2017 – I ran with my 18-year-old daughter and got 2 hours of her uninterrupted attention.
