About Me

I am a mother of two, wife, and runner. I work full-time and squeeze in 80+ miles a week of training in the very (very) early morning.

I am a Canadian living in Starkville, Mississippi. I blog about my running and racing while being a mom. I also deal with Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction on a daily basis and have for 11 years.

In January of 2011 I returned to running after pregnancy, by June I ran my first marathon in 2:58. Three months later I won the Niagara Falls Marathon in 2:52. Three a 1/2 months after that, I won the Rock N Roll New Orleans Marathon in 2:49 (with a bathroom break).

In 2013 I suffered a back injury and switched my focus to the trail. I am the 2013 Canadian Mountain and Trail National Champion and recently represented Canada at NACAC and World Mountain Running Championships. I was 3rd overall at the 2013 XTERRA Trail World Championships.

In the fall of 2013 I became pregnant with my second child, who was born late August of 2014. My goal for a post-baby #2 marathon is a sub- 2:43. Wish me luck!
