Hi, I’m Carrie

I live in Denver, Colorado with my ultra-running husband, Paul, and our Corgi, Orion. I don’t ski, but I drive a Subaru and drink craft beer so they let me stay.

Mile Markers Before Finish Lines

I set a lot of goals, but I struggle with perfectionism, procrastination, burnout, and self-doubt. One of my biggest challenges is shifting my focus from the outcome to the process – to put mile markers before finish lines.

The Beta

  • My biggest fear = riding a bike. But, I have done an Ironman.
  • If I was an animal, I’d be a sea turtle.
  • I have a Masters degree in Exercise Physiology, and for several years I coached triathletes and trail runners in San Diego.
  • My first trip outside the United States was to Xi’an, China.
  • I’m a 9 on the Enneagram and an INFJ.
  • I drink hoppy beer; the more bitter the better.
  • Marvel > DC Comics.
  • I would like to be able to do a handstand, unsupported.
  • I’m a self-taught WordPress web designer. I spend my weekdays building websites and writing content for CrossFit gyms, fitness studios, and martial arts schools.
  • I don’t watch a lot of TV, but my favorite shows are Shark Tank, Chopped, and American Ninja Warrior. I might be competitive.
  • I love to rearrange furniture. It drives my husband nuts and makes the dog very nervous.
  • My favorite time to eat avocado is all the time.
