Motivation to Run:

To get outside every day, connect with myself, connect with friends, set goals, and surprise myself with what I'm capable of.

Proudest Race:

Boston 2017, when I woke up hallucinating in the med tent with a 105 degree temperature after finishing the race. It was the hardest race I've ever done and I barely remember the second half, but I'm just amazed that I finished!

Wish-List Race:

London or Tokyo - both are hard to get into and I'd like to run all 6 majors!
