I’ve been running a long time — 30 years. It began with a 5k road race. Soon I was running 10k runs. Then half-marathons. I couldn’t stop. Naturally, marathons came next. After 10 marathons I tackled my first ultramarathon — the JFK 50 in 2005. My first 50 miler. Fourteen years later, I’m training for my 28th ultramarathon. I’m an ordinary ultrarunning. I love ultrarunning!
I’ve gotten a lot of inspiration from running books, websites, documentaries and ultrarunning YouTube videos. At the urging of my son Sebastian (I ran my first half-marathon when he was 6 months old), and with his help (he created my YouTube channel banner), I finally posted my first YouTube video in March 2018 — Ultrarunning & Brisk Walking
With my iPhone and GoPro, and my husband Jon as the videographer, I’ve had fun creating short, informative, and hopefully, inspiring videos. The videos offer tips from how to stay cool with frozen hydration, to running books that inspire and motivate, to running errands during a training run, to how to stay safe and well-lit during night runs. You’ll even see me take a break from running and rock climb my way up a wall instead.
