Running has been a part of my life since a very young age.
My family has always been a big influence in my running and has encouraged me in all aspects of my running, from cross-country and track and field in high school and college to trail running all over the mountains of central Idaho.
Endurance running has been my passion for most of my life. When I was 8 years old, I attended the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run with my grandpa, who was the head medical director and the official shotgun starter of the race. The knowledge and passion I’ve gained from my family has driven me to the running path I am now on.
I currently live in Pocatello Idaho where I study geo sciences at Idaho State University. When not studying or running, I work at Pocatello Running Company and enjoy participating in the local running community.
My training focus is now dedicated to trail running and more specifically, ultra-marathon running. The longer distances and races are components of running that I have always enjoyed in the big mountains that surround central Idaho.
