I live in Southern California. I’m best known for accomplishments in Ultra running. But as long as I’m in the mountains, I’m happy. I love technical, high altitude trails, I find peace and grounding there. I have 42+ Ultras under my belt, 7 of them 100 Milers; Angeles Crest, Chimera, Zion, Ouray and Tahoe, to name a few. 6 in top 10 female category.
Accomplishments from 2021: My 2021 accomplishments were to stay healthy. But, I really enjoyed pacing my friend, Luke Ullett, to finish his first 100 miler. We ran through the night at Big Bear Kodiak and finished strong. The accomplishment that I am most proud of didn’t come from running but did require commitment and dedication. I purchased my own home.
Goals for 2022: January was the annual Mt Wilson, “Make it a Double” event. A challenge to run 28 miles with 10,000 feet of elevation gain. You can do as much or as little as you’d like. Also, tentatively the Mt. Mitchell 40 miler in North Carolina and an unofficial Backbone 69 in March. In May, I’ll cross Grand Canyon with a back-to-back rim to rim. Also aiming to qualify for NYC Marathon. In July I'm working in Europe... I’ll find some trails while I’m there. When I get back, I'll fast pack in the Sierras North to South lake, and summit Mt. Russell, a 14er in CA.
Favorite Fluid flavor: Cinnamon Vanilla Recovery makes me want to EARN my recovery. I can’t wait to chug it down after a day of being beat up on a mountain run.
A song that fires you up: My favorite victory song is This Girl is On Fire! by Alicia Keys. “She’s got both feet on the ground and she’s burning it down...” You know the rest.
