Run and be happy.
For almost 21 years I worked in a job I loved, but one that didn’t fulfill me. I knew I needed to make a change and when I had the opportunity to move to the Seattle area, I took it! It was a bit intimidating leaping into the unknown, but I needed a challenge and this was definitely it. I had a lot of time to think about what was next when out on long mountain runs with my dog. I would always say “ I need to go Run the dog” trying to figure it all out. Then one day while out on a run in my HAPPY PLACE it came to me, so many people need this service! I love dogs and running… This is what I love!! And then the ideas started to flow. I looked up certification classes, went back to school and Run Those Dogs slowly came to life. It was the best decision I ever made and I couldn’t be happier.
Running has been a huge part of my life for as far back as I can remember. In 2004 I ran my first 1/2 marathon while training with USA fit in Bellingham, I was hooked at that point. I stayed in the program for over 7 years running and coaching others along the way. Fast forward to today I have run over 12 full marathons and several Ultra marathons including my first 50 miler in May 2014.
I ran my 3rd Boston marathon in April 2015. I have a passion for fitness and love to share my knowledge with others when given the opportunity. Running and pets are my passion and I’m excited to meet your favorite furry friends.
