First Trials qualification
Number of attempts to qualify
2023 U.S. 50K Champion and Silver Medalist, 2023 World 50K Championships; American Masters Record-holder, 5K and road mile; runner-up, 2022 USATF Half Marathon Championships; 3-time All-American; former American Junior Record-holder, 3,000m steeplechase
My husband, Joe, and I have been married for 15 years. We have three children: Annabelle and Zella (both 8) and Cooper (6).
Having the courage to get pregnant again after losing our first two children. We now have three beautiful, healthy children and they are by far and away my biggest joy and my greatest accomplishment.
After qualifying for the 2012 Trials I was told I would never run more than a few miles at a time again. I barely ran at all for nine years, then after having five children I started to run again to carve out some time for myself, and ended up qualifying for the 2020 Trials on the very last day. I also completed my first two ultramarathons in 2023, winning a national championship and finishing 2nd in the world.
