Monnica is a 5’2″ wife and mother of two with lots of positive energy. She started running back in elementary school when she figured out that she could run fast enough to catch the boys to kiss them. After that she loved the feeling of the adrenaline rush she gets from running and has never stopped. She ran on the junior high and high school teams and went on to college to run too. All for the love of running! She loves it so much she even designed her own line of running jewelry! She loves the great outdoors and anything to do with it especially spending time with the family. She has been marathoning since 2005. She even convinced her hubby that he wanted to start running, & he did, mostly for the BLING! They now plan family vacations and such around running events. She has ran 25+ marathons (pr 4:24)and 180+ half marathons (pr 1:45). Her favorite distance is the half marathon. She enjoys nothing more that helping others. This includes signing up for a race the night before just to go help a friend cross that finish line! She loves making friends everywhere she goes and can talk to anyone, especially while running! She loves to give hugs too. Her favorite advice to tell people is to just go out and have FUN!
