I grew up in Las Cruces New Mexico the Land of Enchantment. I grew up playing soccer and ran track in highschool. Growing up I used to love running my dog and found running easy. I married and later had three boys Zane, Aiden, and Brandon. I divorced and put running aside. I did however still stay very active. I picked up biking, hiking, and roller blading. I remarried in 2010 and moved to Indiana with my spouse of almost 10 years Thad Smith. Since being in Indiana I have become more involved with trail running, biking, and running. I am currently a member of Team Red, White, and Blue which helps local veterans. I also joined a women’s group of triathletes called theAtomic Bettys. I have now participated in a few triathlons as well as duathlons. I am ready to share my knowledge and help out my community anyway I can. My moto is keep on keeping on
