I have been a runner for over 30 years and an MDRA member for over 20 years. My running career began in 9th grade when I joined the cross country team and I’ve never looked back. I’ve been a member of the MDRA marathon training classes in recent years and this summer, enjoyed volunteering as a Pace Team Lead for the Kiwi Group (long run – 10 min/mile pace). For the last 20 or so years, I’ve been homeschooling our two sons. Now that they are grown, I Iook forward to giving back to this wonderful organization that has provided me with a community of friends and many racing opportunities.
