I live in Bucktown with my husband, daughter, and our two cats. I love exploring the area, trying new restaurants, and cheering on the local sports teams (Go Illini!).  My obsessions: coffee, cookies, pizza, wine, and RUNNING! When not enjoying time with family and friends, I’m most likely running (on the Lakefront Path, the 606, or on the Trails!).  

 

My motto: The goal is greater than the fear; the fear of the distance, of the pain, of the unknown, the goal has to win over the fear.

 

One of my favorite quotes, “If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it.  It’s the hard that makes it great.” ~ Tom Hanks, A League of Their Own
