In their own words...

Running achievement I am most proud of: Running as a member of USA 100 km Team for the first time at age of 43 and setting a new American age Record, leading our Team to the bronze medal at the IUA World Championships (2002).

Why I run: I love to challenge my physical and mental limitations as the years goes by. "Running is the classical road to self-consciousness, self-awareness self-reliance."

Future Goals: I would like to run faster and set new standards for Master women for future generations.

Favorite quote: "Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage"- Anais Nin
