This is my forth year with USA Fit and I am happy to be a volunteer coach for the half marathon red group this time around. I started running in 2012 and did the Palio half that year. Last year I raised the bar and completed the Mohawk Hudson Marathon. I could not have done it without USA Fit!

When I am not running, I work for a trade association of NYS non-profit providers of long term care, such as nursing homes. My wonderful husband Bob and trusty Westie Watson have coped excellently with being a marathon widower/orphan. We enjoy travelling inside and outside the US, though we are still exploring this area because we are fairly new to Albany.

I look forward to a great season!!
