Karen started running 11 years ago because she had some friends doing the Burlington marathon and she wanted to join. 40 marathons later, she is a member of the 50 state club working on completing a marathon in all 50 states.
For the past 5 years she has coached both Cross Country and Track and Field at a local Middle School. Last year she became a RRCA certified running coach to help others train for all different lengths of races and time goals. She has been pacing marathons for the past 3 years to help others meet their goals and have fun while doing it.
