2012 Race Plans: Finish a 50 Mile race or a Half Iron-Man, maybe both?

What make you a Tough Chik: I am a tough chik because I never take “no” for an answer. My site is “ROJ Running” meaning it’s the Republic of Julie and I do play by my own rules. I have trained for countless 5Ks, over 20 half marathons, a full marathon and 2 ultras all while attending graduate school and working full time. Each year I try to find new sports or training to keep things interesting and whenever I can I share my passion with others in hopes they will find their own spark.


Fun Fact: My favorite running partner is my 5 pound black & white dog named Emme. She’s a Papillion and loves the challenge of a rocky & hilly trail.
