What make you a Tough Chik: I’m a mom, wife, friend, professor, and athlete. I started out as a competitive swimmer and since have become a runner and triathlete. I’m a goal setter and achiever. I fully live up to the motto “go hard or go home”. I love a challenge and am, therefore, gunning to run a sub-4 hour marathon this fall (just one year after giving birth to my second baby).


Fun Fact: 1. Got engaged in the middle of a long run during my first marathon training cycle (my husband and I have run three marathons together). 2. In 2010, I was inducted into my high school’s athletic hall of fame!
