Hi and welcome to Turkey Runner! My name is Meagan and I’m a 20-something middle of the pack runner. I love running races and my favorite distance is the half marathon, but I have also completed two full marathons. Most recently I have discovered a love of trail running and ultramarathons!
I started running in college in 2007 when I participated with Team in Training, and ran the Country Music Half Marathon in Nashville, TN. I was looking for something to replace the organized sports I was no longer playing, and I thought raising some money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society along the way would be good.
I had a great experience with TNT and after that first half marathon I was hooked. I continued to run throughout college, and graduated in 2010. My wonderful husband, Barry, and I got married a month after graduation and I took a one year hiatus from running as I adjusted to married life and a new full time job.
I returned to running in spring 2011 and have been running consistently since then. I especially love running races, and even dubbed 2014 my “Race Palooza” year. Outside of running I love cheering on my Virginia Tech Hokies, especially in football.
I also love spending time with my husband and our dogs, Hank and Scout.
