Heather was born in rural Maine. Always an avid outdoor enthusiast, she enjoys hiking, camping and fishing with family and friends. Heather played varsity soccer throughout her high school years and when she decided to attend Unity College and play for the women’s soccer team there she took up running as a way to train. She fell in love with the sport from the very beginning and decided to run a half marathon as her first race! Since then, Heather has competed in distances ranging from 5k- 50 miles. Her goals include enjoying more ultras and hopefully a hundred mile race in the near future!
