Favorite Part of Running:

Setting goals and doing everything I can to attain them. Also, all the amazing friends I've made along the way (shout out to the homies).

Most Memorable Run:

When I finally broke 5 in the mile. It was my first post-collegiate track "season" and I had just failed the week before in a more competitve race running 5:10. I was back at U of I for Club Relays and it was my last chance to go for it. I ran solo for the whole thing and about halfway through the Armory crowd realized what was happening and the atmosphere was absolutely amazing. Crossing the line and seeing the big clock stop at 4:59 was so satisfying - just one of the best race memories I have. Lots of congrats from everyone after, too.
