I am a 25-year-old runner from Knoxville, TN. I've completed 3 marathons and countless half marathons, 10Ks and 5Ks. I primarily run road races, but prefer a good challenging trail race. I returned to running in 2017 after a serious battle with depression. Running gave me my life back, and I love sharing my story! In 2019, I am embarking on a 50 Race Challenge, during which I will run 50 races over the entire year. I am so excited to have this opportunity to share my adventures across the United States. When I'm not running, I'm either cooking, listening to music/playing piano, traveling or idolizing Dolly Parton. ("Isn't she a gem?") Oh.. I am also chasing around my two dogs: a Dalmatian named Pongo and a German Shepherd named Jafar.
