Long-Term Running Goals:
I want to qualify for the 2020 Olympic Marathon Trials.
Motivation When Hurting During a Race or Workout:
When times get tough, I recite one simple line in my head. “Do more.”
I started running to get back into shape during my junior year of college. I was a competitive baseball player from the age of 4 all the way to my last day of high school. I chose not to play baseball in college, and focus on my studies. Running came into my life as a form of fitness and exercises. It quickly transformed into a passion. I still carried that competitive edge that I developed all throughout my time playing baseball. This competitive edge then turned my passion for running into a passion for racing.
Favorite Run Location:
The Chilean Lake District. It was incredible to run in the shadows of active volcanos!
Favorite Part of Being a DWRunner:
I always have questions and always want to talk running. Sometimes it is probably really absurd, but I really appreciate Dan's willingness to field my inquiries!
Mountains or Ocean?:
Virginia has both!
Tea or Coffee?:
Early Bird or Night Owl?:
Early bird, because of post-run cereal
Chocolate or Vanilla?:
Is cereal an option?
