Primary Focus:


Long-Term Running Goals:

I want to run 2:58 my next marathon and eventually run under 2:50. I would also like to run an under 17:00 5K.

Proudest Race:

I’m most proud of my first marathon (2009 Chicago Marathon), because I never expected it to happen. Before I started training, I had never run over 1 mile continuously before. It wasn’t fast or pretty, but it proved to me that I could accomplish much more than I had always imagined.

Reward for a Good Race:

Nothing like a amazing lunch and a couple IPA's

"When Not Running, I Can Be Found...":

Cooking, traveling, and watching soccer.

Favorite Part of Being a DWRunner:

I'm just getting started, but I love Dan's enthusiasm and look forward doing great things with the best running team in Chicago!
