I hail from Kelowna, BC Canada and am about a 5.5 hour drive from Seattle. I started running 3 years ago, in 2018 at 43 years ago and immediately fell in love with it. My first marathon was at the Amica Insurance Seattle Marathon and that's why this event means so much to me. I have completed 3 Seattle Marathons (1 virtual). On January 1st, 2019 I started a crazy 5kms a day (walk or run) streak and I have not looked back. It has done so much for my mental health and restored myself worth and helped with depression and anxiety. I am a Mother of 4 and want to be a good example to my children. Running is for Every Body type!
