In the fall of 2010 while training for her first Ragnar Relay Race, Alfa picked up running again after a five year break. Ever since, she has completed 7 Ragnar Relays, numerous 5K’s, 10K’s, Half Marathons and 33 Marathons/Ultra Marathons. Her goal is to complete 50 Marathons/Ultras by March 2016.
Alfa started to explore Ultra running and completed her first 50 mile race in 2013. In 2014 she completed a 52 Mile race followed by three 100 Mile races. Alfa holds a Sub 24 hour on a 104 Mile run.
One of Alfa’s biggest running accomplishments was to complete the Race Across California in January 2015. She ran 10 back to back Marathons from Huntington Beach California to Parker Arizona to support the efforts of the “Race Across USA” and the “100 Mile Club”.
Alfa is a wife and a mother of two kids and two doggies. She loves traveling with her family, loves the outdoors, and when she is not running she is working on her second passion, cooking.
Running in community is Alfa’s favorite because it’s the encouragement of other runners that many times get us through those tough training runs, or races.
