One of my biggest passions is running. Starting in middle school, I joined the cross country team and was forever hooked! My running career continued in high school at Pentucket Regional, where I captained both my indoor and outdoor track team. From there, I went onto the track team at Ithaca College, where I competed in the pentathlon and heptathlon (which includes the 100m hurdles, high jump, long jump, 200m dash, 800m run, shotput, and javelin). After my junior year at IC, I decided to challenge myself in a different way and picked up long distance running. In August of 2012 I ran my first half marathon. Now, five half marathons and one full marathon later, I am a devoted distance runner!
