Hi I am Julie, but I love when people call me Jules!
Now let me share some other things
- This one might be obvious by my header photo, I am a twin. Not as obvious, I am six inches taller than her.
- I graduated from the University of Vermont in 2014 with a bachelors degree in Math/Statistics and now work in a tech company.
- I love New England and have lived in Mass, Vermont and now New Hampshire!
- This past summer (2016) I got a chocolate lab puppy and she completes me. I didn’t classify myself as an adult until I could successfully take care of myself and a dog.
- I can eat a whole box of cheez-its with no shame.
- Taco Tuesdays are very important to my boyfriend and I.
- Suits is my favorite TV show currently, but I am open to watching anything anytime.
- Now for running, I have been running most of my life, but growing up I did it to stay in shape for soccer.
- Once I started working full time I became more dedicated and serious about running. My competitive side was awakened again.
- I ran my first marathon in 2014 in Napa California. I trained myself and didn’t have a watch but ran a 3:42.
- I qualified for Boston last year at the Sugarloaf Marathon with a time of 3:33:09 and the same day I met my puppy for the first time and landed a dog friendly apartment. Can you say best day ever?
- I missed getting into the 2017 Boston marathon by 18 seconds.
- I returned to Napa in 2017 to redeem myself and ran a 3:20:15 PR. I am still overjoyed and can’t believe it.
- I started volunteering for Girls on the Run this spring (2017) as a coach and have continued into the fall!
- I am an RRCA certified running coach and have been coaching athletes since July 2017, it truly is my passion!
