Karen began running in August 2010 at age 36 after beginning the program called Couch25K with her friend Angela. They began the 9 weeks of training at Mountain’s Edge Park in Las Vegas. They ran their first 5K that October and have been hooked on the sport ever since. Karen has run in countless races since then including several 5K’s and 10K’s plus several others. She also completed her first Half Marathon in Disneyland, CA this past January. She completed the Red Rock Canyon ½ Marathon in March 2012. She plans to do at least two more half marathons before the end of 2012.
Karen will be getting married in June of 2012 and is attempting to do what so many other athletes do: coordinate family, friends, fun, and fitness all while working full-time and planning her wedding. She is also continuing her education and is working on her Master’s of Science Degree in Organizational Leadership. She credits Ben, her fiancé, for being her biggest supporter.
