I ran my 1st half marathon on my 50th birthday, first stepped on a track when I was 56 and created the 1st Elite Masters female racing team ever sponsored by a global brand (New Balance Tampa Masters Racing Team) when I was 57.
At the end of 2016 I felt I needed an advanced level of coaching and sought out Tribal Multisport where I started one-on-one training with Coach Jon Noland.
This year, as a 58 year old, I have achieved 3 age graded “world class” elite performances: most recently in the Jacksonville mile, another in the 5k and a third in an 8k on Virginia Beach. All of these were USATF sanctioned road races.
My current “World Masters Athletics” rankings in indoor track for my age division in the 2017 season are;
400m – 6th in the U.S
800m – 3rd in the U.S.
1 mile – 2nd in the U.S.

Running helped me become a dreamer again and I hope that it has inspired others to do the same. I beat a lot of “stuff” along the way, not just pacing requirements. To think in 5 years someone can go from not being able to complete a 5K to being Boston Strong with a sub 3 hour marathon is pretty special to me. It will help me teach my kids about the importance of goal setting as they grow. It’s ok to try and fail, it’s not ok to fail to try. “Dream, Believe, Do, Repeat!”
