I'm a 25 year old social/cultural anthropology graduate student, an injured distance runner anxiously awaiting my return to the sport and a hip and foot that are pain free. For now I want to shed those pity pounds that have crept up since the injury back in mid-July of 2006.

Approximately 3 years ago I made the jump into a healthy lifestyle. I was close to 200 lbs., a far cry from the 114 lb. figure skater I had always been. I hopped off my butt, put down the burger and decided to learn to run. It was not long before I fell in love with the sport, dropped 64 lbs. and learned to love myself again. Now I need to re-teach myself that love.

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to stay in shape both physically and mentally while battling injuries and being away from the sport I love.

My Program:
I'm sticking to pool running for my cardio until I can get these injuries under control. It's tough but worth it in the long run. I never thought I'd be so restricted to movement since I'm used to 75+ km weeks of running. It's tough but I hope to be running again this fall.

Personal Information:
I'm a Newfoundlander born and raised, true to my little island. A social/cultural anthropology graduate student and I work at The Running Room part time in both sales and coaching Learn to Run clinics. My true loves are my family and friends, both furry and non.

My 5 rats, 2 ponies, boxer, 3 kitties, 2 Syrian hamsters, and albino African clawed frog are my little kiddos.

I am also a gaming addict, collector of horror films and Garfield merchandise and love to read.

Other Information:
My family, both human and furry, are my life. I'm the proud mom of 5 ratty girls named Columbia, DeeDee, Chrissy, Barbara and Sidney, 2 Syrian hamsters named Cash and June, 1 boxer named Caesar, 2 ponies named Star and Cisco, 3 kitties named Autumn, Harlem, and Maggie and an albino African clawed frog named Kermit D. Frog. Creative, I know.

I'm also an avid horror film collector, reader, Terry Pratchett fan, adore metal, folk music and classic country and love gaming. I'm a big kid at heart.
