As a full time mother, business owner, writer, athlete, and Creighton University professor, I have several projects that keep me busy. Here's where you'll see my voice in other places and why that's pretty rad.
Reebok Spartan Race Blog - I also serve as the blog editor, head writer, and strategic content marketing manager for the Reebok Spartan Race. An international obstacle racing company where trail running meets obstacle course that challenges the most practiced endurance athlete but also provides a unique racing opportunity for anyone willing to come out, push themselves and find their finish line. We expect close to a million athletes in 2013 and over 60 events. When I began with Spartan there were only 20,000 fans, now there well over 2.5 million.
Spartan Chicked - I am the founder and one of the originating members of Spartan Chicked. It's a movement born in the Spartan Race arena dedicated to female endurance athletes and enthusiasts that promotes health, well-being, and participation in endurance sports. "Chicking" a term used in the racing world where a woman passes a man encourages women to find and pursue their best selves and maybe even pass a few boys along the way. With networking, encouragement, and community we are bringing thousands of women together and showing them what they are capable of accomplishing.
Rad Racing. I started the company in 2011 and it serves as the hub for Spartan Radio, where I host a weekly show. The mission of Rad Racing is to actively promote traditional and non-traditional endurance athletics at every opportunity, provide a hub of information, consulting services, and an overall commitment to excellence in the sports associated with endurance athletics
