  • How did you become part of MYB?
    A friend invited me to run the Jazz Fest fun runs. Love the support & encouragement from the MYB Krewe!
  • Why did you start walking/running?
    I started running when I turned 40 when a friend asked me to run the Rock & Roll Half Marathon with her.  I basically went from couch to 13.1 and lost 20 pounds along with the way! 7 years later, I'm still running.
  • What is your favorite post race/cheat meal?
    Cheeseburger & Fries of course!
  • If you could have one super power, what would it be & why?
    Time travel, but only backwards. Old World history buff here!
  • If you could run with any celebrity, who would you choose?
    Keanu Reeves, just because he seems like a cool guy.
