But what they don’t know is that I…

I am committed to CrossFit trainings, Spartan obstacles course racing, and a paleo lifestyle. This has helped me build balance in my life by improving my strength, confidence, and health.

I got started with my hidden talent when…

Over two years ago, mine and my family’s health was going on a downward spiral. At that point, I joined CrossFit ParaBellum in Turlock and it changed my life. Our children learn out habits–good and bad. I wanted to teach my daughter healthy habits by example.

And someday I hope to…

I’d like to become part of the Spartan Trifecta Tribe by finishing of of each Spartan distance obstacle course races–Sprint, Super, and Beast. I just completed the Spring at AT&T Park in San Francisco. The next races I’ll be participating in are the Super taking place in Monterey and the Beast in SoCal.

The last book I read was…

I’m currently reading The Presentation: Secrets of Steve Jobs by Carmine Gallo. Lots of great tips that expand my Toastmaster experience.

I also enjoy…

Putting my chef’s hat on at home by cooking healthy and tasty meals using some of the freshest ingredients found here in out Valley. And spending time with my family by going on nature hikes, attending theater shows, and participating in local community events.

How would you recommend that people get started running races?

I’d recommend that people find what is a good fit for them. Personally, I chose the Spartan obstacle races because they mirror CrossFit trainings.
