I believe a healthy lifestyle = a happy, healthy life. Running can be just one part of that equation. Whatever your obstacles, if you have the desire, I can help you achieve your health and fitness goals. No time to train? Let me help you find the time. Too tired to train? Let me help you find that energy. I'm here to help you run your first 5k, 10k, half or full marathon with a successful finish.
I graduated from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in 1996 with a BS in Kinesiology. I've been an avid runner from the time I was 12 years old and interested in health and fitness since 16. At 19, I had major back surgery and learned firsthanP-80 active lifestyle are key to living pain-free. After the birth of my second child, I was 30 years old and working full-time when I ran my first marathon. Now 44 and 13 marathons later, I still believe in the power of a healthy lifestyle.
I spent 12 years after completing my Kines BS sitting at a desk in the engineering field (that's a story for another time). After the birth of my 3rd child, I said enough is enough to the 9-5 job and decided to pursue my training and coaching dreams. Currently I am working on certifications with the American College of Sports Medicine and American Council on Exercise for Certified Exercise Physiologist and Certified Health Coach.
