I am passionate about California singletrack and all things running. I am a wife, a mother of two young boys and a wine industry attorney.
I’m originally from England, but now hold dual British and American citizenship. I feel very fortunate to be a member of the Nike Trail Team. This past year, I qualified for the Olympic Marathon Trials, won the 2016 50k Road National Championships and set a new Masters American Record (40-44). This followed on a very exciting 2015, in which I was the Montrail Ultra Cup Champion.
Consider my greatest running accomplishment to be getting out the door. Every day. Well, almost.
