5k: 17:48, 10k: 38:47, Half Marathon: 1:26:41

Primary Focus:

All distances! But currently focusing more on longer trail races.

Proudest Race:

I ran my 1st ultra this fall over twice the length of my longest race prior to it. The course was not at all what I had planned for and I ran alone from 28 miles. I stayed positive and present and finished 4th overall female, learning a lot about myself in the process.

Favorite Race(s):

I love the Grand Rapids 1/2 Marathon and the North Country Run.

Favorite Workout:

Hill repeats at Warren Dunes State Park OR an 8-10 mile tempo in the middle of a long run on the road. Grind, grind, grind! 

Favorite Part of Running:

Being outside and experiencing nature. 

Favorite Part of Being a DWRunner:

The infectious support and enthusiasm of everyone that's a part of it.
