Where do you live?
Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin

What event are you running with Team for Kids?
The TCS New York City Marathon!

What excites you most about running your event with Team for Kids?
Being able to support kids and give them the opportunities to reach their full potential.

What is your favorite place to run and why?
My favorite place to run is around my parent’s lake at their cabin. It is beautiful and calming.

If you run with music, what are your favorite artists or songs to listen to?
I listen to an array of songs from old to new, just no metal!

What is your favorite post-run meal?
Burger!

When did your relationship with running begin and why?
About 2-3 years ago. I joined Moms On The Run in Eau Claire and they sparked something in me that I will forever be grateful. The support and friendships are amazing!

Do you have any pre-race rituals or superstitions, if so, please explain?
Laying out my outfit the night before and having my breakfast ready (PB&J and a banana) and everything else I need. Spaghetti the night before!

Why did you choose to run this event?
I am a teacher, so I believe in and love children. They learn healthy habits early in life and the more we can guide them and help them make good choices the better for them in the long run.

Tell us a little more about yourself:
I am a 2 year old teacher and have been teaching for almost 10 years now. I am married to my husband Jeremy and we have a son named Theo. He is the light of our lives! We will be adopting our second child in the near future!
