Running, simply put, is a series of left foot, right foot, left foot, right foot steps. To me running is much more than that. It is a chance to free your soul and connect to nature in a way that is not possible through any other avenue. Running has changed my life physically, mentally and spiritually. Physically, I am as healthy as I have ever been in my life. Mentally, I am more focused and able to endure life’s challenges. Spiritually, I feel more content and satisfied in my current life direction than I ever have before.
I believe the best gift running has given me is the opportunity to inspire, encourage, and help others enjoy and grow to love this great sport. I aspire to make running a full time career where I can continue to fuel my own passion and grow my own personal running abilities while being able to continue inspiring, encouraging and helping other runners of all levels. I believe the true definition of success is helping someone else achieve something they once thought was impossible.
I am very fortunate to be a part of an outstanding team this year, Team TROT, and to be sponsored by Altra and Hammer Nutrition.
Altra has the best shoes on the market. Their shoes have been specifically engineered to fit the natural shape of the human foot and include a foot shaped toe box and a zero drop level cushioning.
Hammer has the best fueling and recovery products available. While using Hammer products I have experienced a huge difference in how I feel during racing/training and how I recover after a hard race or workout.
