When Did You Start Running? I entered a 5 mile walk/run in Columbia in September of 1988 and ran most of it.

Who Is Your Running Role Model? Who Has Influenced You Most In Running? All of the great friends I have made in the Track Club. Part of the fun is getting together to visit as well as racing and competing.

Awards and Honors Lots of medals, plaques, trophies, and prizes for winning my age group over the years. It's all about the medals!

Personal Info and Interests: Cammy Ronchetto encouraged me to race in triathlons, and I have completed 14 triathlons since doing the Show-Me State Games triathlon in 1996. I also enjoy yoga and pilates, and going on camping and fishing trips with my husband (who also runs).
