My running journey started in 2011 to help reduce that new adulting-stress and unwanted college weight! The running community has helped my mental and physical well-being in areas I can't describe, all thanks to the roots of the Running Etc. Team. Being a part of this group of athletes has helped my husband and I (Kyle Carlson: Running Etc. Ambassador) meet the most inspiring and amazing people who later helped us push ourselves to new goals and limits. I've completed numerous half marathons, three marathons, and in 2018 I entered the world of triathlons. I've completed a few sprint triathlons, one half Ironman, and in 2021, I plan to finish my first FULL Ironman! When my husband and I aren't training, we are beach bums, enjoy hiking in the mountains, and eating/drinking at local restaurants and breweries.
