Thanks for visiting my site! This page is a landing ground for my thoughts as I stay busy raising twins, running races, camping in Florida and playing at Disney.

My boys were born 7 weeks early, and we spent 21 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) after their birth. This created a special place in my heart for Children’s Hospitals, specifically those supported by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

I wasn’t much of a runner before I had my boys, but once they were born I found a lot of peace in sharing miles with them in their stroller. I set my goal on my first 5k – the Wine & Dine 5k at Walt Disney World. It was awesome, and I was hooked.

I was excited to discover that Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals were the presenting sponsor for the upcoming Disney Princess Half Marathon. I signed up as a fundraising runner, completing my first half marathon just 1 month after my twins turned one. It felt amazing to run with their spirit in my legs.

As we approach their 5th birthday, our family has raised over $6,000 for CMN Hospitals through RunDisney. It is an honor for me to represent the hospitals that provide such amazing care for my kiddos.

I now have 3 marathons, 27 halfs, and countless 5 and 10ks under my belt. My greatest accomplishment in life is my children – the way they met their early challenges has taught me to never give up.
