Running Start:

I definitely started running by accident. I played soccer all the way through my freshman year of high school (including club), moving up through the ranks and earning a spot on the Varsity squad for the state playoffs. Granted, we lost in the first game, but nevertheless I had planned on making a career out of it. I ran a 5k road race during the soccer season as my family had urged me on and posted a 17:39 after going out in 5:10. Naive running is the best - go out hard, hang on and see what happens.

Proudest Race

The 2015 Boston Marathon. 29th Overall, 14th American. It was a tough day. Rain, headwinds the entire way, but it's one of those days where you are on-point and nothing can stop you.

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

Working or Raging (sometimes).

Favorite Part of Running:

It all comes down to race day. The preparation is admirable, but putting it all together on race day and executing is why I'm here.

Favorite Part of Being a DWRunner:

The knowledge and trust in the oversight of the group.

Favorite UA Product:

I still own a base layer from college! 10+ years and going strong!

 

Mountains or Ocean?:

The combination of both is amazing but I would have to go with mountains

Tea or Coffee?:

Coffee

Early Bird or Night Owl?:

Night owl

Chocolate or Vanilla?:

Vanilla
