Primary Focus:


Long-Term Running Goals:

Would love to break 2:50 in the marathon.

Motivation to Run:

It's my meditation and brings balance to my life; I love running, not only since it's an excuse to be in nature and makes me feel great, but also because it has connected me with a great community wherever I've lived.

Favorite Run Location:

I have several! The English countryside has a special place in my heart, the Netherlands (over the bridges in Rotterdam & Amsterdam in general); East coast in South Africa; Melbourne, Australia along the river; the Hong Kong trails; Chicago lake front!

Reward for a Good Race:

I love to have a good beer and get a massage!
