Primary Focus:

Half Marathon and Marathon

Proudest Race:

My first sub-3 marathon at Grandma's in 2015. This was coming off a longer injury layoff and I was not sure what to expect going in.

Favorite Race:

It's a toss-up between Grandma's and Big Sur - both very scenic although I probably would not run Big Sur again because that race was extremely painful both during the race and the days afterwards

"I run because,":

It's part of a process, I go out there (almost) every day and try to get better.

Wish-List Race:

I am fascinated by mountain ultras and even though I have no experience running in the mountains nor have I ever completed an ultra I would love to run Western States sometime in the future.


Mountains or Ocean?:

Mountains (kinda have to say that having grown up in Switzerland)

Tea or Coffee?:

Coffee (lots of it)

Early Bird or Night Owl?:

Used to be a night owl but as I am getting older definitely an early bird

Chocolate or Vanilla?:

Preferably both

Bolded PRs are PRs run while training with DWRunning.
