Ashley began running in 2014, when her father, step-sister and her set a goal to finish their first 5k together. For 2019, her New Years Resolution was to run at least 12 events… but so far she’s already done 27 of our events. Her first run was the Bluebell 5k which she was able to run with her son in a stroller. This is a big reason why she continues to run with Bishop’s Events along with our race series. Within those 27 events, two accomplishments stand out. Ashley set a PR at the Freedom Fighters 10k in Prince William Forest Park even with all of those challenging hills! She also came in 3rd Overall at the Connect Our Kids 5k in Great Falls Park, Mclean, VA while pushing a strollers over the hills. Our next goal is to finish a half marathon, potentially even the Disney Princess Half and do the Fairy Tale Challenge (5k, 10k, & half). Running has provided Ashley a chance to bond with her son during the events as well as encouraging other runners once they have finished. In her spare time, Ashley works on craft projects to give back to charities and the community such as Warm Up America. She is also a classically trained flutist with the Herndon Regional Wind Ensemble. After a race, you won’t catch her with her flute, but you may catch her with some Cheetos!
