Back in the early 1980’s, there was this race everyone talked about…the Virginia 10 Miler, and there was lots of peer pressure from friends, “come run with me, it’s great fun!” I gave into the peer pressure and have been happily hooked for over 30 years! I’m so thankful for the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.

I’m a proud wife and mom of three. They also enjoy fitness through running, soccer, swimming, biking and cross training.  In addition to spending time with family, I enjoy running with friends who are training for marathons and appreciate the beautiful mountains, trails and roads of central Virginia. Hilton Head is also one of my favorite places to run.

Having the proper running shoe and cross training has kept me injury free. I am happy to share my knowledge and experience with others striving to meet their personal health and fitness goals in my spare time as a personal trainer at a local studio. I find great pleasure working at Riverside Runners as it is a rewarding opportunity to help others find the best products to suit their needs and stay injury free.  

What I’m loving right now:

My favorite shoes and apparel include; Asics, Adidas, Brooks, Mizuno, New Balance, Nike, Saucony or anything in orange and maroon!
