I worked VERY hard during my years at Stanford and earned my B.A. in Psychology while participating on a team that finished 3rd overall in the Women’s College World Series.
Following graduation, I returned to my hometown and pursued my master’s degree while serving as an assistant softball coach for Creighton University.
Running kept me in shape, but I never raced. Then, I met Harmony who asked me to participate in a 100k relay. I never realized the community I would be introduced to.
After the race, I was inspired and began my blog Blonde Ponytail in an effort to record my fitness journey, connect virtually, and learn from others. You can read more about my races or approach to training. I even inspired Spencer to run a couple races with me.
Most recently, we have raised our game and tackled CrossFit. We love the challenge behind the workouts and the functional aspects of that training.
Another frequent character on the blog, is my golden retriever, Cooper. You must love him or we are not friends.
Most recently, Spencer and I found out we will be welcoming a baby girl in early June this year. Follow my fit-pregnancy journey until then!
