Running is life. I'm a Spanish teacher, choral director, diversity practitioner, cross country running coach, blogger, and avid trail runner who believes that many of life's lessons can be learned by simply engaging oneself in the pursuit of wisdom gained through simply moving your body in nature.

In February of this year, a WSJ reporter contacted me, inquiring about my blog FATGIRLRUNNING, subsequently writing a piece in the newspaper (featuring me and another fathlete) about being fat and fit. Then Runner's World picked up the story and did a feature article about me in their August Issue. Most recently, NBC Nightly News produced a "Nightly Film" about me and also aired a segment during the news! I've got more cool and exciting projects lined up so stay tuned!

I am humbled beyond words to have been able to tell my story and inspire others to be active with whatever body they have.
