Join me as I travel around the country to fulfill my goal of running a marathon or half marathon in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia!


Because photo shoots are fun...and because I needed some normal pictures to make up for all the hideous awesome race pictures I have (scroll down and be prepared for a Jillian-Michaels-type ab workout from laughter), I decided to post these pictures.

If there is anything I love almost as much as running, it's probably photography. I really enjoy taking and editing pictures.

When I first started running I thought you had to be a size zero to call yourself a "runner," but 3 years later I'm glad to have found out that runners come in all shapes and sizes. I don't have a perfect body (I'm still working hard on it) but I'm confident that I AM a runner, and I DO have curves. And yes, those two things can overlap...just like my thighs :)

Got this right after my first marathon!

And now...for the good stuff:

Baltimore, MD 1/2 Marathon
National 1/2 Marathon in Washington, DC
Cherry Blossom 10 mile race in DC
Crying my way to the finish line of my first full marathon. Everything in my body hurt!

Ha - I look ridiculous. Brutal race in Dallas, TX
