My friends describe me as
The most amazing moment in my life so far
I had a deeply spiritual experience while on a run 5 years ago. It changed my life forever.
 This is by far the longest I've ever been away from home, family or work. My trepidation is offset by an abundance of support and encouragement, especially from my children and the most amazing boss any employee could ever have. The chance to be outside in motion while exploring new countries and cultures is a dream vacation for me. I also know from my past experiences that it is the people that I meet along the way that make these journeys so special. I am truly blessed.
