columbia 5k coach
I was never really an "athlete". I dabbled in softball and volleyball in high school, played on a work softball team in my 20s and went to the gym regularly. That was about it. When I was in my 30s, a friend ran the Disney marathon. I thought "I can do that". In the spring of 2010 I joined a couch-to-5K program, and I finished my first half marathon that October. Since then, I've done 5Ks, 10Ks, 10 milers, countless half marathons and 2 marathons (and I'm not done yet)!
I coached Girls on the Run when my daughter was in 5th grade and I was the track and field coach at Rockville High School for 3 years. I love sharing my love of running with others, even those who say they hate running. The camaraderie of the running world is contagious- runners are just generally cool people. I love being part of the CCR family and working at the store in Columbia. As a teacher, I'm a people person by nature and love to see people reach their goals. I'll be right there, cheering you on, every step of the way!
