Fisheries Biologist, Spokane Tribe of Indians, and Reardan HS Girls Cross Country/Track Coach
My mother (who lives in Orcas Island WA) saw Farmgirlfit on Facebook and knew it was something I would love. I’ve been competing in 5Ks for years and never been able to get to the next level as a runner and FGF is the answer!
I have had a roller coaster ride throughout my FGF life time! I am so happy I joined, the coaches and member are amazing and be supportive during my recovery. Last December I had a very sudden stroke and was out of commission for 4 months but I am back at it and so lucky to be here! I love FGF and my strength and endurance is quickly returning and the coaches have been great during the hardest time of my life. I am stronger, faster and healthier since joining FGF and I know I will keep improving!!
My cross country kids! I love coaching high school distant running. My girls push me and I push them. They also inspire me to be a healthy athletic role model for young girls!
To be honest my recovery, all of my strength and endurance was basically wiped out after to my stroke. Five months past my stroke and I am faster and stronger now than before!
Unassisted pull ups, I want it so bad! Also run a half marathon, I am running the Windermere Half this June (wish me luck!).
Running! Every time I see the grind includes running I think, “Yes! I’m going to beat some people today!”
Double-unders, I am so terrible at them and it hurts!
The coaches! All the coaches remember you and want you to succeed. I was out of commission for several months after my stroke, and half way through my recovery I ran into [Coach] Savhanna downtown. She knew exactly who I was and was extremely concerned about my recovery! They are all AMAZING!
Well I am extremely busy all the time, there’s not enough time to list all of my activities but here are my favorites! If I am at work, I’m out on Lake Roosevelt driving our electrofishing boat and catching fish (awesome job right!). During the afternoons I’d be at Reardan High School coaching cross country/track, running with my wonderful girls (they keep me young)! At home I am hanging out with my amazing boyfriend, his adorable 3 year old and our 2 dogs. We love fishing, hunting and backpacking! Like I said, I’m a busy girl!
Swan Lake, by Republic WA. I have been camping and hunting there my entire life, it’s beautiful and amazing!
I’ve been competing in karate tournaments since the age of 11, so watch out ;)
First of all get your tushy in to FGF and join! Secondly keep going, I know you are so sore you can’t walk properly but it will pass!
