All about me...I am a wife, mother, and high school math teacher. I grew up in a big family in upstate NY and moved to Colorado after I graduated from college. I have been teaching for 25 years, the last 16 years in Aspen, CO. I love everything to do with the outdoors-camping, backpacking, hiking, trail running, mountain and road biking, cross country and down hill skiing (as well as uphilling and backcountry skiing.) In 2019 I completed my first trail 50K in Croatia with the Challenge Aspen team. We raised money for the organization which created possibilities for people with disabilities-cognitive or physical. This organization has a special place in my heart because they help our older son who has epilepsy and autism. We believe in raising him to reach his potential with his interests and also loving the outdoors! We are an outdoor family!
I am doing my second training with Challenge Aspen to complete a trail marathon in Italy, outside of Milan. I am raising money again and love to represent their motto. In between travel races, I do other races in Colorado (Imogone and local races-The Golden Leaf in Aspen and Lead King Loop in Marble) and Utah (Moab and Fruita.)
