Serving role since January 2022
Past Board Role(s):
Vice President (April 2021 to January 2022)
How Long Have You Been With PRC?
Since January 2019. I moved to Newfoundland with my family that same month and year. Prior to this, I was part of a large running group in Houston, Texas where we lived for six years.
What Made You Start Running?
In 2010, I began running as a way to get in shape after having two children. What began as a pastime turned into a passion.
What is your best/worst run?
My best run was the Tunnel Light Marathon in September 2018 when I achieved my Boston Qualifying time. My worst run was actually my fastest time at the Toronto GoodLife marathon in 2013. I ran too fast, suffered an injury on the course, and tripped and fell at the finish line. Many lessons learned that day!
Favorite running shoe?
Saucony all the way. Presently wearing the Triumph.
How do you track your runs?
I’ve used Garmin watches since 2010. Presently enjoying the Garmin 935 Music. Best watch so far.
Do you have a current running goal?
My current running goal is to get back to speedwork after a year of no speedwork due to injury. Ultimately I plan to work toward another full marathon and qualify for Boston again.
Best training tip you can provide/received?
Always stretch after every run or any cross training workout. Always. This will avoid injury. Remember to take the time to enjoy this sport and have fun with it!
