I love running, biking, climbing (rock and ice), hiking, enjoying a beer, meeting down-to-earth people, and my dog. I do my best to live an active, healthy, and happy lifestyle.

Been climbing long?

Asides from a few trips to the indoor gym, I haven't climbed much the last five years. Before that, I climbed almost every weekend in West Virginia and took trips to New Hampshire, Colorado and California. I'm really excited to get back into it!

Favorite way(s) to climb (indoor, outdoor, trad, sport, toprope, bouldering, alpine, ice, etc)?

Outdoor top roping and sport climbing are my favorite. Been ice climbing more recently. I am comfortable following on multi-pitch climbs but most of my climbing has been single pitch. Not a huge fan of bouldering. I like the gym for conditioning and a winter alternative.

What do you like to do when you're not on the wall?

Hang out with my dog, Maya, train for marathons (fulls and halves), cycle, drink beer, cook, and appreciate life.

    Hey Elena, Thanks for joining the group. I see that you joined the Brandywine paddle. Do you need a kayak or do you have your own? With all the rain we just had it should be a nice paddle. I look forward to meeting you.

    Hey Elena,

    Glad to hear that Fat Frogs was able to take care of you! That's a great deal on the bike, it's the exact same one that I ride. I'm OK, I have a hip flexor/glute issue that's been ongoing and it was just really bad this morning. If you aren't used to riding at all I know that Tom and Rosanna are going to Dismal Swamp tomorrow afternoon. It's a great spot to get comfortable on the bike. You should hit them up, it'll be warm tomorrow too. Talk to you soon.
