Primary Focus:

Marathon and half marathon

Favorite Place to Run:

Back home in Maine. You can't beat getting forests, the ocean and hills in between.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Qualify for the Boston Marathon. As a kid from New England, it's THE race to run (not to mention the granddaddy of all marathons).

Favorite Race:

The Shamrock Shuffle. You get to race in the greatest city in the world, with 40,000 of your closest friends, without having to suffer through a marathon.

Running Start:

I started running as a senior in high school. I initially did it to get in shape for my primary sports (Nordic skiing and lacrosse), but it ended up taking on a life of it's own. 

Desired Super Power:

Flight. Teleportation would be cool for purely functional purposes, but I'd want to fly around for fun.

Favorite Part of Being a DWRunner:

That DWRunning is a TEAM! The camaraderie is incredible!
