Hi! I am 53 years old and live in Portland, OR but was born and raised in NYC. I did not become an athlete until around age 40, although I have always been very social and "busy" with friends and activities. I would run here and there, but not much else. I was raised by sedentary parents with poor diets. Since the start of the pandemic, I have learned to love running alone but for the past 1.5 years, I was l have been a “pace mentor” for a local women's running group of over 100 women! I have shared my lover picky bars with just about everyone of them. So much so that they make fun of me that I get kick backs :-) I am an ambassador for Terrapin Events, a local running company, I love providing health and fitness with my community. I am a physical therapist I currently work in the compliance area of the field. I volunteer quiet often and have done quite a bit of networking/fundraising for the organizations that I am passionate about. I love to run, hike, snowshoe and ski. I ran my first hood to coast race this year and i am currently training to run the NYC marathon.. my first!!
I love these bars and would be honored to help spread the love!! They truly are the only things I can eat before I run! I also love the trail mix fix oatmeal and I have purchased drizzle for every single friend and relative’s birthday over the past 2 years!!
