Like runner, like daughter

My mom Laura has always been a runner and grew up running competitively with both of her sisters. She got a running scholarship to run track and cross country at the University of Georgia (UGA). I grew up riding horses and spent pretty much all of my time in high school and first two years of college riding. I didn't really find running until I moved to NYC for an internship before my senior year of college— I needed a way to exercise and I wasn't exactly able to bring my horse to the city!

I started running more and more, and my mom convinced me to train for a half marathon. She and I signed up for the Kiawah Island Half in December 2016 and I haven't stopped running since.

Unless you count taking our dog for walks, we didn't necessarily have a shared sport or active hobby that we did together when I was growing up. Now we race together and every time she is in town visiting me, we make sure to sign up for at least one Mile High class. Running has been something really special that we can share and I think it strengthens our already close relationship— it gives us something to bond and connect over.

When I tell my friends that my mom not only runs half marathons, but that she kicks my butt too, they are so impressed. She totally inspires me to be stronger and faster!
