Bio: With my former distaste for running, little did I know that running, let alone pacing, would later become a passion. I started by putting one foot in front of the other and never giving up, even during the tough times. After a few years of running and pacing I encountered a few bumps in 2016, in the form of injuries. I had to withdraw from the 2016 Gazelle Girl Half Marathon, a race I have paced since 2013. I was heartbroken, but made the best of the situation. I ran the Gazelle Girl 5K because I didn’t want to miss out, and had fun! Subsequently I was able to pace a few races this year and will never take this ability for granted. I hear inspirational stories from runners about overcoming obstacles and one thing I hope to do as a GGHM pacer in 2017 (including my corny jokes and songs) is encourage others to never give up.
It takes a lot of hard work to get to the start line, so I want to help you reach the finish line at GGHM! I hope to see you out there!
Why Gazelle Girl: Gazelle Girl is pure positive energy! You can feel it around you! I also find Gazelle Girl to be a welcoming environment and support for all women runners, no matter your pace or experience.
