I started running my junior year of high school as a sprinter on the track team. I continued sprinting through college and added the 400m hurdles to the mix. After taking 3 years off after college, I started distance running and have been going ever since.

Favorite Part of Running:

Running is the time of the day to clear my head and focus on my goal race.
