Once 100 pounds overweight I made the choice to change my lifestyle. After hitting my weight loss goal I was looking for a way to stay motivated. That’s when I stumbled upon Spartan obstacle course racing. Competing in one event helped me realize that completion was really appealing to me. The following year I began racing competitively at the age group level and after a few years in that space I decided to really push myself and race at the elite level. I now compete in obstacle course races as well as hybrid events like Spartan Deka. I have a love for trail running and all things endurance but also enjoy quick paced fitness racing indoors. I enjoy spending my time motivating other people in my community to push their beyond their own limits so they can do as I did and become something they never knew possible for themselves. When I’m not training or competing you can find me freelance writing for various fitness platforms, working on my PhD in social psychology, spending time with my pups, or cooking up something delicious. I truly love socializing with others and traveling new places to compete.
