Hi. I am a Nashville native and I grew up swimming competitively for NAC. Following my college graduation, I decided to trade in the pool for the roads. Since my debut marathon in 2005, I have run 5, including Boston in 2010. In recent years, I made another athletic switch: this time, I set my sites on the trails. In 2011, I won my first very ultra marathon, the Stump Jump 50K trail race in Chattanooga, making me the RRCA State Champion for Tennessee. In 2012, I placed 2nd at the Mt. Cheaha 50k in Alabama , 2nd at the RockCreek Trail Marathon in Chattanooga, and 4th at the 60 mile Stage Race in Chattanooga. I am proud to be a member of the race team, Nashville Running Company, who's flagship store is located in East Nashville. You can find me most days running one of these: Percy Warner Park, Bowie Park, East Nashville, Downtown Nashville, or the country roads around my home in Fairview. When I'm not running, I spend my time with my family playing on our farm, hiking trails, riding bikes, or rock climbing.
