My passion is helping others defend themselves and their families. I am an NRA Certified pistol instructor, a NRA Chief Range Safety Officer, leader of TWAW Shooting Chapters - North Cincinnati, and the state leader of TWAW Shooting Chapters - Ohio. I also have a heart for the Lakota people and lead mission teams to the Pine Ridge Reservation each year, am founder and director of Backpacks For Pine Ridge,, and do various volunteer work in my own community. My greatest joy is being a grandma and hanging out with my husband of 30+ years.
I don't know if you know it or not, but somewhere in a city not too terribly far from where I live, there is this lady ... she's incredible ... she's a wife of a police officer, a mother to 3 adorable kids who say the darnedest things, a photographer, a gifted writer, and now I find that she is also an athlete. You really have to read this article on her blog - she didn't write it, her husband did. It'll amaze you. It'll inspire you. It'll challenge you. And it'll give you a peek into the life of this amazing woman!
Yay!!! GO KARIN!!!!
Now where did those old running shoes go? I may just have to dig them out and maybe join her next year for the Spina Bifida 5K ....
