I started running in 2010 when I found a brochure at the GO! St. Louis expo for the runDisney half marathon and decided I HAD to run through Cinderella’s castle! Since then, I’ve run more half marathons that I can count and a few full marathons, and I haven’t looked back. Coincidently, now I work for GO! St. Louis, so I get to see the other side of running now too!

I love running more days than I don’t now and I’ve become an early morning runner vs. an evening runner. I hired an awesome running coach to help me train for the Chicago Marathon – Kristen Van Horn (The Concrete Runner).  She’s amazing and my running has really improved! Check out her 6-week Elite Running Academy, which is the program that changed my life and helped me get my running groove back after losing most all of my motivation post-marathon.
