- XC Running -

I've been in the sport of Cross Country Running since middle school and it wasn’t until high school I began to run competitively. In my last year of high school cross country running I was zone champion and had several podium finishes at different meets. My first place qualification in zone championships allowed me to compete in the ASAA Provincial Cross Country Championships. I came in 5th in 2015 with a time of 15:48, running the fastest time I’ve run a 4km on a cross country trail. I then qualified to compete in the Nationals held in Kingston, Ontario later in 2015. Also in 2015 I competed in the track provincial championships and came in 2nd in the 3000m with a time of 11:03. In 2016 I now compete for the RDC(Red Deer College) cross country running team. My first college race I was able to out sprint a competitor for third place in the 5km women’s race, helping my team to win points for the overall lead for colleges. My second college race I was able to come in third again with a personal best of 20:17 for the 5km race. We hope to advance to provincials and nationals with podium finishes.

 

I also enjoy downhill skiing, badminton, tennis, and completed my first triathlon in 2015.
