I am a wife and mother of 3 incredible young adults! My life is a journey filled with unexpected twists and turns but through it all I love it. I love that I’m blessed with the most amazing supportive family!
My husband and I have been running our own business for 23 years. The business allowed for me to be a stay at home mom, homeschooling all three of them and pursue my passions.
Through the loss of my mom and with the encouragement of a friend I took on the challenge of participating in The Weekend to End Breast Cancer (60k walk over 2 days)! I participated in the event for a number of years and all the walking eventually turned into running. I love it!! It’s so therapeutic for me and rewarding for me.
I am a goal oriented person. I set goals, I work hard to achieve them and then I set new goals. I have discovered that I love to be challenged, I love to push hard and feel accomplished and empowered when I get out for a run and the conditions are less then perfect (rain, snow, minus stupid weather, etc.) I trained for my first marathon in 2013, this was huge for me. Running for 3 and 4 hours week after week seemed insane, yet I was out there, doing it. More than that, I was out there doing it and loving it! I’ve since ran 6 marathons, the Niagara Ultra (50K), the Bad Beaver Ultra (3 day stage race/150km) twice, the Grand to Grand Ultra (273km/6 stages) and in 2017 I set a goal of running 100km race and I finished three!!
I am extremely grateful for the amazing people that running has introduced me to! Friends that are more like family!
