About Me

Just a girl who grew up in Long Beach, CA. I have been in the Army for 11 years and currently stationed at Fort Bragg, NC. I live with my husband AJ, a Norweigan Elkhound named Kobe, and Ragdoll Cat named Storm.

I started running during fall 2017. That November, I registered for my first marathon that was scheduled in May 2018. I ended up doing the North Carolina Fatass 50k in January 2018. Since then I have run several marathons/ultras, completed my first 50-mile race, and started training for my first 100-miler in April 2019.

I created this site to keep a journal of my running adventures. Hopefully, my stories will inspire you to get out and experience the magic of running!
