Race Resume

While I've been hiking and climbing for many years, my running career has been a short and intense one. I ran cross country during high school (1996-1999), though only part-time. Through college I ran sporadically, competing in a few local 5K races. During the summer of 2005 I met a man named Jeff Kozak, a cook and ultra runner at the Rock Creek Lodge in the Eastern Sierras. Jeff introduced me to the fantastic world of ultra trail running, something that greatly intrigued me. Ultra marathoning combines long distance hiking with trail running, taking athletes through forests, over mountains and through some of the most beautiful terrain the world has to offer. In 2006 I began training for my first 50mile race, the Bishop High Sierra 50miler, running a mixture of trails, roads, and beaches locally around San Diego. With the assistance of the McNew clan and the wonderful participants of the BHS50 I completed my first ultra marathon, and have been hooked since!

Now I regularly compete in ultramarathons throughout the Western US, but my true love still lies in the mountains. Heading out on long mountain runs, up 14ers, along 3 day backpacking routes, and into the depths of the wilderness. The past few years I have learned about my personal training regimen, proper hydration, salt intake, fueling, keeping my body healthy and pacing for races of all distances.
