About Me

Hi and welcome to Turkey Runner! My name is Meagan and I’m a middle- to back-of-the-pack runner. I love running races and my favorite place to run is on the trails.

I started running in college in 2007 when I participated with Team in Training, and ran the Country Music Half Marathon in Nashville, TN. I was looking for something to replace the organized sports I was no longer playing, and I thought raising some money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society along the way would be good.

I had a great experience with TNT and after that first half marathon I was hooked. I continued to run throughout college, and graduated in 2010. My wonderful husband, Barry, and I got married a month after graduation and I took a one year hiatus from running as I adjusted to married life and a new full time job.

I returned to running in spring 2011 and have been running consistently since then. I especially love running races and enjoying the community aspect of running. Outside of running I love cheering on my Virginia Tech Hokies, especially in football.

I also love spending time with my husband and our dogs, Hank and Scout.
