I was born and raised in Seattle, with several years in Houston and St. Louis, before finding myself in Portland. I am a coffee addict and I love pizza margherita. I had been a fairly non-athletic person most of my life until a former co-worker convinced me to try sprint distance triathlons! I went from triathlons to running. I love the thrill of a race morning, not to mention the bling! When I’m not training, I’m either working, reading, travelling, or taking photos. I’m a basketball, football, and futbol fan and love cheering on my University of Washington Huskies (Go Dawgs!) and my Duke Blue Devils. I’m an introvert who watches too much TV and will do just about anything for M&Ms! I love to complain, tend to be overly dramatic and I never, ever, ever exaggerate – ever!
This blog chronicles my travels, training, races, and other adventures and misadventures.
