Growing up, I always loved running, but I never found my way to cross country or track and field. Around the age of 19, I started running more routinely but never exceeding six miles.

My love for running was always there, but with competing priorities, it was always the first thing to drop off my to-do list.

It was not until last year when that mindset changed. In may 2022, I joined the Steeplechasers and since then I have become more consistent with running. I’ve ran 11 miles, and PR’ed in two races.

For 2023, it is my goal to complete a half marathon strong.

Becoming a member is one of the best decisions I have ever made, running has never been better or more fun!
