Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA (Go “Stillers”!). Fitness and running are just a few of my passions – along with hiking, backpacking, drinking good beer, and spending time outside, or heck, anywhere, with my dog, Mia. I have been running since high school, but finally found true enjoyment in it nearly a decade ago now, after hiring a personal trainer who really challenged me – pushing me past limits I never thought I would reach. I have run 5 marathons, 2 sprint triathlons, and several halves since then … but now, more than ever, I turn to running almost daily for fun, and that much needed mental escape!
Fun fact: I signed up for my first half-marathon the day before … and if I must say so, I crushed it!
