Primary Focus:

I'd say the marathon right now.

Proudest Race:

I'm most proud of my PR half marathon race - I was executing my race plan perfectly for about the first 8 miles, then went into a bad patch mentally and thought there was no way I'd be able to hold it. At the next water stop, I let myself walk through it, drink the water & Gatorade, and then started up again with a new mindset and pushed myself to the end for a PR by over a minute!

Long-Term Running Goals:

I would love to run under a 3 hour marathon some day because that seems like an elusive goal, but I know I'd have quite a bit or work to do to get there!

Motivation to Run:

It's something I know I'm both good at and is good for me.

Best Running Story:

One time I found a $20 bill on a 20 mile run, so it was almost like I got paid $1/mile.
