Will Run For Food

I am a mom, lawyer, ultrarunner, ultrawalker, swimmer, and cook, living in Texas. I ran my first 50 miler in May of 2006 and my first 100 miler in November of 2006. Since that time, I have run numerous marathons, fifty milers, 100 milers and 24 Hour runs. As a four-time member of Team USA, I have competed in four World Championships (we won the Silver in Italy, and Gold in Poland and the Netherlands – Yay!).  I love the spirit of the ultrarunning community and feel lucky to be a part of it. I go through life hoping that anything is possible, and that when it does, it’s usually funny.

I’m currently doing #Project6240 – my quest to complete 6240 miles in 2022. The project came about because I was a caregiver for my ailing mother, and found that I could not make race or travel plans. I felt sort of lost, and realized I needed to come up with a goal that I could achieve on my own, one that wouldn’t require following an outside schedule or race calendar. Project6240 has given me a purpose for staying active, while simultaneously helping me manage the stress and sadness of caring for a dying parent.

When I’m not running, walking, or swimming, I’m cooking, and then sharing it with family, friends – and you (many of whom happen to be the same people)!

Thanks for reading my blog! Keep on running (and walking) and cooking!
