Hi. I’m a stay at home mom in Westerville with husband and daughter and son. I am active in Church of the Messiah and as a Volunteer for the Westerville North Marching Band. My daughter plays the trumpet. I started running by walking as part of a big weight loss journey that took a detour for a couple of years, during which I did Title Boxing and little racing. I also got out of the habit during the Pandemic. But I’m ready to make a comeback. My favorite part of running is being done. My favorite part of racing is encouraging others. I’ve been know to come alongside and put a word of encouragement in a stranger’s ear or a reassuring hand on their back. So, if you feel such a hand, welcome to my world in the middle of the pack!
