I’ve been married to Dr. M for almost 8 years now and we have a little girl named Haylie.
The Madeleine part of the name comes from the pastry chef aspect of my life. It’s one of my favorite pastries and also one of my daughter’s middle names.
The marathon part is from my love of running and all things that go along with that (training, racing, gear, etc). Running has become a huge part of my life since having my daughter. It makes me feel confident and strong, and also is a great way to just clear my head. I’ve learned to push myself harder than I ever thought possible.
I want to set a good example for my daughter and show her that you can do anything that you put your mind to. I’m also motivated and inspired by so many great runners in my community. I hope I can provide some inspiration as well.
