Every morning in Africa a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.

About Me

My dad got me started running when I was 8 years old and I haven't stopped since. I am a distance runner although I have yet to do any marathons (I always get asked how many marathons I have done. Zero and I don't plan on any soon!). I was diagnosed with gluten intolerance in Fall of 2010 and have been gluten free ever since!

I recently graduated from Utah Valley University with my Bachelor's in Exercise Science and I plan on attending Physical Therapy school. I have worked as a physical therapy assistant and as a personal trainer.

I love running and I hope to share my experiences and advice with others! Feel free to contact me with any questions regarding running, injuries, or training. If you have any suggestions of things you'd like to see on the blog let me know. I love hearing stories from my readers of things you have accomplished and overcome on your journeys.
