Victoria grew up in Door County and then attended UW-Madison. She’s been in the area ever since and currently lives in Sun Prairie.
Victoria is a school counselor, and she enjoys reading, running,
walking, yoga, and strength training in her free time.
Victoria and her husband celebrated their 20th anniversary this year!
They have 2 children; their daughter is a senior, and she is planning
to attend college next year. Their daughter is a swimmer and although she does not claim to be a runner, she will walk the 17 mile Syttende Mai. (This will be their 2nd year of walking together.) Their son is a 7th grader, and he enjoys playing soccer and running. He participates in cross country and track, and he has ran a number of 5ks over the past couple of years.
In 2017, Victoria ran her first marathon. She has been running 1/2
marathons since 1997 and has run 23 1/2 marathons to date. Her plan is to run 7 more in 2020 to complete a total of 30… (goal setting is important for overall training).
Victoria is currently a pacer for some of the local 1/2 marathons. Victoria hopes to get to know many other runners along
this journey! The Madison Mini is Victoria’s favorite race, and she ran the Madison Mini 1/2 marathon the past 5 years. Because of her connection to UW-Madison, it is always a nostalgic experience! She loves all the people who come out to cheer on the runners and the enjoyable time at the Memorial Union Terrace after the race.
