Primary Focus:

Half Marathon and Marathon, but I would like to improve any of my other PRs.

Favorite Place to Run:

Saukie Golf Course, Rock Island, IL (Augustana College's XC Course). I ran all of my best college XC races there.

Proudest Race:

I am most proud of running the state meet my senior year of high school and helping my team place third in state. Starting as one of the slowest runner on the team freshman, running at the state meet was dream that I once thought was impossible. To live that dream was one of the greatest moments of my life.

Pre-Race Meal:

A triple-decker PB&J with a pack of fruit snacks and OJ.

Favorite Part of Running:

Seeing my hard work payoff in my races, how great I feel after every run, many lessons I learned through running can be applied to my daily life.
