Hometown: Missoula Montana (well, I am from Scottsbluff, Nebraska originally but now I claim Missoula!)
Miles Run Per Week: Around 40 miles
Currently Training For: This year I decided to run all the Run Wild Missoula races, so I’m training for those. I thought it would be a fun goal and a good way to experience the variety of races RWM hosts. I plan to do the half Marathon during the Missoula Marathon weekend.
Favorite Race or Run: For a run, my favorite place is running up the Rattlesnake whether it be from the Runners Edge or the main trailhead. For a race, the Boston Marathon and the Missoula Marathon are my favorites.
Words of Wisdom: One of the main reasons I have always ran is because of the great friends you can make through the sport. The social aspect can really keep you going, especially on those days going for a run seems tough! I really appreciate the running community in Missoula, and it keeps me motivated to keep running. I would encourage others to find a training class, group run, or just a running friend that you can share running with.
