Hi Everyone!  Welcome to RHC and the 2:15 pace, half marathon group!  This will be my first year as an assistant coach and I look forward to getting to know you all through our many miles to come!  

I wasn’t always a fan of running... I grew up as a competitive swimmer from the age of 4 up until I graduated college at 22.  The only time my college swim coach would have us “run” was during our winter training trip and I remember glaring at him every lap.  Once swimming stopped, I continued to eat like a swimmer and put on quite a bit of weight.  I moved to Hawaii after college and continued to put on the extra pounds eating as many of the events there revolved around food.  In order to get back on track, I began to "run".  I started with 1/4 of a mile and slowly began building my mileage each week.  I ran my first marathon in Honolulu, in 2008 finishing 6 hours and 7 minutes. I currently enjoy the half marathon distance and began doing triathlons (olympic length) in 2016.  I completed the Galveston Half Ironman in 2018, but was unable to finish this year because of a cancellation (got through the swim, bike, and 1 mile of the run) due to weather.  I’m signed up again for it next April.  My goal this year is to actually put effort in to my training so I can enjoy it!

I look forward to hearing your "running" story as well as anything else you'd like to share!  If you need anything, please don't hesitate to ask.  Set your goals and lets have a great season!
