I ran my first marathon in 2002 (Grandma’s in Duluth, MN!) finishing in 3:36:02 at age 20. Eleven months later I ran another one (Coeur d’Alene), and then 6 months later I ran another one (Seattle). Sometime during my senior year of college my roommate suggested I try to run 26 marathons by age 26. At first, I thought she was crazy. But before long I was working and living in Seattle signing up for local races and also traveling to hit the big ones (NYC and Boston). The races ticked by and I ended up running marathon #26 in Seattle on November 26, 2006 at age 24.
Since then I’ve dabbled in triathlon with some really rewarding results, meanwhile working on my marathon times, taking risks, and pushing my limits. Thanks for reading!
