Welcome to This Might Hurt Our Reputation.

I picked up speedskating in the 2008-2009 season. After a year of telling Lisa that she was crazy for finishing work to head to skating (I was her boss at the time). When she left our school for another position she dared me to try it just once. Fifteen minutes into my first lesson I was sold.  I skated up to her and said next week you are taking me skate shopping and that is when my love of speed on thin blades began.

I am a native Minnesotan and grew up on figure skating at the local rink. I enjoyed skating at lunch recess at school along with countless evenings and weekends on the ice with my friends. Last year, after being only on speedskates for three months I decided to try the National Long Track Marathon. For the 2010 Marathon, I am hoping to skate both the 25k and the 50k in Bemidji to keep my National title.
Professionally and personally, I am a school prinicpal, member of the International Society for Technology in Education sigadmin board and mother to two amazing kids who love to speedskate as well. When I am not on the ice, I enjoy traveling.
