My name is Amy. I live in Aguanga, which is in Southern California, on a homestead with my husband, 2 kids, & 5 chickens. I teach high school English and have been writing poetry since my own sophomore year. I have one published poem in the BIOLA University anthology The Inkslinger. This is my second attempt at the half marathon. Last year, I made it about 7 hours before life overwhelmed me. I enjoyed my experience last year, especially the comments my poems received. I hope to complete the first half marathon and comment on more marathoners poetry this year.
