Courtney is an avid runner who loves being out in nature. Whether she’s chasing down a PR, blowing off some steam or running for the shear joy of running; she’s in her happy place. She enjoys traveling and exploring new places. While she calls Michigan home, she’s usually scheming up an adventure with her running shoes in hand.

Why Tiux?
I am a big believer in compression socks. I’ve trained for many races and a huge part of training is recovery. Tiux provides the perfect blend of performance and recovery! They help keep my legs feeling fresh and my feet feeling fast!

Greatest Achievement:
Hands down, running the Boston Marathon. I would have never imagined that I was Boston material, but it just goes to show that you can really do anything you set your mind to!

Current Goal:
I’ve started to focus on some shorter distances in the last few months. I want to run a fast half (1:30) and a 5K in under 20 min (I’m so close!!).

Training Tip:
Listen to your body! I’ve been through multiple injuries due to overtraining. It’s so easy to get caught up in the training and let really important things like recovery fall off your radar. I’ve learned that rest is sometimes the key to racing performance.
