My journey into the world of fitness started at a fairly young age. Swimming lessons at the tender age of 5 didn’t go so well. I remember vividly the swim instructor requesting I swim a little ways toward her. As I gauged the distance between myself and her, I thought to myself, I can do this, this isn’t that far, and with that self-encouragement I was off. Getting closer and closer, I swam to a point and thought to myself why is this taking so long? It wasn’t until I swam nearly double the distance I originally calculated that I noticed she was moving backwards as I progressed forward! I remember feeling bamboozled and furious, vowing never to attend a swim lesson again. But luckily that feeling didn’t last. I grew to love taking on new challenges. I had hobbies covering all forms of exercise. From street hockey to basketball, I noticed early on I was self-motivated and competitive. As I entered the world of endurance sports, I took previous lessons and applied them toward whatever discipline I was crafting. My outlook on fitness encompasses three main ideas: Setting goals, being comfortable with yourself, and always striving to find new limits. I gravitate towards helping others see what I saw in myself– that anything is possible with the right push.
My greatest accomplishment came at age 5. I had finally tired my dad from chasing me around the house trying to spank my butt… The next day I was chasing a soccer ball and before you know it, I was playing soccer at the Air Force Academy. I grew up playing soccer, but I was also active in other forms of exercise. It wasn’t until a few years ago training with Eric for Ironman Texas was I actually able to piece this idea of “BEING FIT” all together. Fitness is not about competing against the person next to us; it’s about beating the limits we set on ourselves. And that is how I approach my training and hope to share with others, “Celebration of life over limitations.”
Growing up I played sports, but I was definitely the "artsy fartsy" kid...danced, cheered, played piano, violin, sang, musicals and art. My love for fitness really started in 2009 and it's never stopped. I think it was a surprise to everyone when I got so involved. However, it was no surprise when it came to helping other people reach goals. I've always had a passion of helping people and watching them succeed. Being part of someone achieving their goals and surprise themselves is what I love most about teaching classes.
Growing up, I was never involved in formal sports. It wasn't until after I graduated from college and I moved from city to city that I developed a love for running. I'd explore the unfamiliar streets around me discovering all the wonders the city had to offer. I eventually moved to Chicago, as it so happens, the night before the Chicago Marathon. The energy of Chicago and all its runners inspired me to pursue distance running and racing. I joined Nike Run Club Chicago where I learned what it was to be part of a running community. Through Nike Run Club I met the Go City Runners, a crew of runners "rooted in the discovery of places, people, art, and culture through running," and by being a part of the Go City Runners, I became a member of a running family with ties around the world. With over 30 races finished including 5 marathons and one 50k ultra-trail, it's the runs done without a bib number pinned to my shirt that matter most. The places I've seen and the people who have shared the miles and their stories with me, these are the reasons why I love running and that will keep me running. I hope to inspire a lifelong love for running here in my hometown, Houston.
