I have lived in Utah my entire life. I lived in Layton for 17 years and then ventured on… all the way to Kaysville, which is seriously 2 minutes away. My dad Coaches basketball at Layton high. He coached me all 3 years in high school where we won the State Championship in 2005. My mom is a fitness fanatic, she runs, plays soccer, does cross-fit and p90X, and has amazing self control when it comes to food. I think this is where I get my fitness craziness. I have always loved sports, especially basketball and soccer… running however was not my favorite. running just to run didn’t do it for me. I preferred chasing a ball.

I first started running my freshman year in high school. My comp soccer team fell apart because all the girls decided to try out for high school and they made the team. I did not try out, so I was left with nothing. My Dad suggested the brilliant Idea of Cross-Country. He wanted to keep me in shape for basketball, and I was just looking for something to do… I get bored easily. First day of practice the coach made us run 4 miles! I finished, but was not happy. I wanted to quit right then and there, my dad wouldn’t let me. And believe me I never stopped trying. All through high school I participated in Track and Cross-Country, don’t ask me why. It may have had something to do with the fact that I was good at it. Yet, I was that uncommitted athlete who skipped as many practices as I could get away with, and hid in the bathroom during the longer distance practices. And even after all my flakiness, I was still the best runner on the girls team.

Here is a picture of me actually running.

Anyway, I quit Cross-Country and Track my senior year throwing away my chance to place in State. I didn’t care. After high School, I went to College at BYU Idaho and found myself taking health and exercise classes. Suddenly I’m the girl who wakes up early for a morning run. Now I can’t stop. I’ve ran races here and there, never anything over a half marathon. but mostly I run to stay fit and because I actually enjoy it. Call me crazy…
