I've been running since I was forced to do it in boot camp (24 years now. Dang!) I discovered I was fairly good at it so I kept it up. Since then I've competed in college track and cross-country, completed 4 marathons and 2 ultras, and numerous half marathons. To this day running is still my drug of choice. I run so I can shed the stresses of life, and there's nothing that can compare to that post-run feeling. I started coaching in 2001. Since then I've coached various levels of walkers and runners to complete various distances from 5k to marathons. I've been inspired by FCP's (former couch potatoes) and stroke survivors who complete their distance goals. I've worked at Fleet Feet Sports Sacramento in 1998, and I can't imagine a better company to work for. It's a privilege to have the opportunity to inspire people on a daily basis to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and to show them the tools to shed the stresses of life.
