I am the head coach for the Redington Cross Country Running team. I have been a runner for over 40 years and have competed in races since I was in elementary school, through college and on into the community running scene. I was the head coach for the Colony High Girl's Nordic Ski team for 12 years before leaving CHS. I am trained in coaching techniques and first aid, and love competing and encouraging others to stretch their abilities in athletics.
I have been in more races than I can count, and have enjoyed many local events such as the Alaska Run for Women, The Musk Ox run, Race for Technology, The Menard run, The Gold Nugget Triathlon, Eagle River Triathlon, Try the Trails Triathlon, Why Not Tri, Turnagain Arm trail run, Bird Ridge run, Knoya Ridge run and Mt. Marathon, to name a few. I hope my enthusiasm for getting out and enjoying the world through running will rub off on you too!
