Here I am, a simple wife, mom, runner and teacher, always trying to let God guide me to be the best me I can be and use His gifts to the best of my ability. I started running when my daughter started cross country (at age 7). I didn’t see the point in sitting around while she ran, so I started walking, and before the end of that cross country season, had signed up for my first half marathon (recruited my husband and friends as well). I love my native Wisconsin (which almost automatically includes a love for cheese and beer…thus all of the running) and my Green Bay Packers. I hope to inspire others to run through those who continue to inspire me! I get by with a little help from my friends! Enjoy.
