NOTE: My challenge to myself in 2012 is to race 12 races. I would love if others joined in too on my spark team for it I actually plan on making all the races 1/2 marathons.

I've never been skinny, but I have been fit. I'm looking to find that athletic fit girl again. The one who goes on random adventures and doesn't even question if she can complete it.

I work full time, do grad school part time and commute way too much. So some days I just don't feel like I have any spare time. I know I need to find that time though.

I have done the Spark with great success before (as Hockeycrew). I fractured my leg doing a 50k and fell completely behind. I'm starting over so I can really get motivated again and get back to ultramarathons.

I'm excited to get back into a routine of eating well and packing healthy food. I actually really enjoy eating healthy.
