I've been a runner since I was in Middle School, but didn't take up snowshoeing until I lived in Bend, Oregon about 12 years ago. It was really by accident that I fell in love with snowshoeing. My first attempt was in rented snowshoes that were definitely not built for running. I thought that it couldn't be that difficult to run 8 minute/mile pace in snowshoes for a 5-mile loop....90 minutes and two completely bloody and bruised ankles later I was hooked!
I've competed in five USSSA National races and have been lucky enough to finish in the top five each time.
To return to snowshoe racing (after several crummy winters in Reno and no races), compete in the U.S Nationals, and have a great time!
