Favorite Quote:

“Finish What You Started” – it has been my mantra throughout my weight loss and running journey. I have it tattooed on my left foot.

Why do you run?

I run to prove the doctors wrong. I had back surgery in January 2011 and he said I would never run again! Since then I have completed 22 half marathons and 5 full marathons.     I run to challenge myself.    I run so I can drink beer and keep my 80 pound weight loss off for good.    I run because I love Sparkle Skirts and knee socks.

Favorite place to run:

Ohh tough question. I love running around Boston, but I do love running on vacation exploring new cities and towns.

Running gear you can not live without:

Sparkly Soul headband, Sparkle Athletic skirt and my knee socks!

When not running where would we find you?

Chilling at home drinking good craft beer with my wife and two pups.

Favorite post race fuel:

Water, Chocolate Milk, Dunkin Donuts Iced Coffee, Beer … in that order!

Song you want to hear at the finish line:

Defying Gravity from Wicked or Go The Distance from Hercules
