Besides these three running circles around me and keeping me on my toes at all times, I love to run and train with Fleet Feet’s Speed Squad, teach spin, lace up my figure skates every once in awhile and fit in some quality ice time, and play some PSL coed softball with my south side crew when I can!  I could not juggle all of this without my kick-ass partner in crime, my amazing husband, Josh! 

Guilty Pleasure: Huge cup of fro-yo with all the toppings. Yaaaas!
