What makes you nervous about having your portrait taken?

I have never felt that I was very photogenic. I realize that we all have flaws but I am more comfortable on the other side of the camera.

What's your story?

I raced cars for 34 years with my husband as my crew chief. Eight years ago we started running to loose weight. When I look at myself I don't see myself as your "typical" runner body but I still go out and do my best and enjoy the friendships that I have made.

Can I share some of your images?

Yes

What do you love doing that makes you feel kick ass?

I have always felt that way since I was the only girl in the family and neighborhood growing up. Racing cars for all those years against men and beating them made feel badass! When I started running I came across a group of women runners called Another Mother Runner and Badass Mother Runner. It really made me feel like I am not just a wife and and mother but a total badass at everything I do.

I feel that we all need to constantly change ourselves so that we don't get bored with ourselves. I keeps us on our toes and makes life so much more interesting.
