Background and Personal Athletic Experience
I’m a foodie first, so restrictive diets are off the table. They can be therapeutically beneficial, but the goal is always to be able to eat as wide a variety of foods as possible while still attaining the results you desire. I’ve been athletic nearly all my adult life but learned the hard way how what we know about sports is catered to men, not women.
After overtraining myself to extreme fatigue, I had to back off from what I loved for nearly a decade (I had a baby and went back to grad school, so that slowed me down a bit) and am coming back to it in my 40s humbled but wiser, armed with sex-specific research and a passion to prevent other women from running themselves into the ground by showing them how to train and eat in congruence with their hormones, rather than training and fueling like college men (which is what the bulk of research stems from).
Historically, I’ve completed 7 marathons and over 10 half-marathons, including a Boston qualifier and the coveted Boston Marathon in 2010. I’ll be returning to half marathons starting with the Lake WA half in 2019 and am thrilled to be back in the game!
