Born and raised in Washington, Missouri Crystal was a track girl qualifying for 4A state in the 400m. After going away to college at Missouri State where she only ran recreationally, Crystal returned to Saint Louis and picked up running again after her future husband convinced her to sign up for a half-marathon. Crystal enlisted the help of Big River Personal Coach Tim Bradley in 2011 and has seen significant improvements in her times since. She is currently working towards qualifying for the 2016 Marathon Olympic Trials by running a sub 1:15 half.
