5k-half marathon - for now

Long-Term Running Goals:

Proudest Race:

My 3:09 Chicago Marathon debut. I was completely new to running and had no idea what I was doing. My goal was to run 3:35 and qualify for Boston, but when I got to the expo I knew I could push myself more. I signed up for the 3:10 pace group and never looked back! My whole family was at the race, and getting to share my first marathon with them was incredible. Plus, ChiMar is just a good time.

Pre-Race Routine:

Whatever hair style has been the go-to throughout the training cycle, I have to replicate it on race-day. I also always have a piece of gum in my mouth on the start line.

Best Running Story:

I was featured in Runner's World's list of ugliest runner's feet!
