2012 Race Plans: Disney Princess Half Marathon in February and plan to do as many races as I can this year.  Need to sit down to figure out my 2012 schedule!

What makes you a Tough Chik: Let me first by saying I am not fast.  I have never won a race or placed in my age group.  I am a back of the pack racer and it has taken me a couple of years to be OK with that.  I am average girl that weights above average and enjoys doing endurance events; even running.    I want to show other women out there that age or size should not stop you from doing anything you want to do.


Fun Fact: Loves Brussels sprouts can not run without music.  I have been known to go back home when my iPod has died even if I am not done with my run.  I now religiously charge my iPod and Garmin the night before a run.
