Vanessa started running in January 2012. She qualified for Boston when she ran her 2nd marathon and running for her has been a whirlwind ever since. Vanessa was on the list of “Best Frequent Marathoners of the U.S.” in 2013, 2014, and 2015. Her most noted accomplishment is winning the overall title for the Lake Tahoe Super Triple during the weekend of September 27th-29th, 2013 where she ran a marathon on Friday, a marathon on Saturday and a 72 miler Saturday night to Sunday morning. Vanessa also completed the Vol State 500k “screwed” in 2020. Vanessa really enjoys running ultras and loves climbing mountains!
Vanessa enjoys races of all distances and finds pacing every bit as satisfying as running her own races.
