DWRunning Tenure:

Joined in December 2016

PRS: 

5k: 17:33, 8k: 28:43, Half Marathon: 1:21:35, Marathon: 2:50:58

Primary Focus:

Half marathon, but working on moving up to the full marathon

Proudest Race:

I'm proudest of my first half marathon. It was the first big race I'd trained for since getting back into running after about a 5-year break, and first time racing longer than 10k, so I didn't really know what to expect but managed to trust myself to find the right pace, and ended up being really happy with my time and finishing strong.

Favorite Run Location:

Venice - running is one of my favorite ways to explore a new place and it seemed like there was some cool piece of history every block.

Favorite Workout:

I'm a fan of hill repeats (when I can find them, living in Chicago).

Running Start:

I played a lot of sports growing up for fun, but nothing really clicked until I joined my middle school cross country team in 7th grade, where I spent most practices trying to keep up with the boys.
