Mary has been running marathon races since 2009 but has been a runner ever since her father passed away when she was 16 years old. Back then she ran to escape life and now she runs to embrace the joy that is life. She is constantly in awe of how running connects a community of strangers into a community of instant friends, friends who all have the same goal…to FINISH. She is proud and honored to be a member of this community of strangers!
Mary is blessed with a wonderful husband and two amazing children who support her in all her running endeavors. She has completed 25+ half marathons and a handful of full marathons and is a member of Moms Run This Town-Denver. Mary is excited to be a pacer to encourage others to reach their goals. When she is not running and spending time with her family Mary works in Denver Public Schools as high school counselor.
