Courtney lives in Wilmington, NC where she attends college at UNCW. She is majoring in Psychology and Elementary Education, and hopes to find a job teaching kindergarten or first grade when she graduates. Wilmington is an amazing place to live. It is right on the beach and it is a very active community. There is always something to do here whether it is biking, running, SUP, yoga, etc.
Courtney’s favorite form of exercise and main passion in life is running. She has been running for about 3 years and can’t imagine her life without it. Her first half marathon was the 2013 Disney Princess Half Marathon. It was the most amazing experience and She has been addicted to racing ever since! Since then she has ran two other half marathons, and just completed her first full marathon. There is no better feeling than crossing that finish line!
She believes the quote “Though she be but little, she is fierce” by Shakespeare describes her perfectly. At 5’1” and ¼ (don’t forget the quarter, it’s important) She may look small, but she can and will do anything if she puts her mind to it!
