Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training, racing, and life?
“Grit can make up a lot of ground on talent, don't be afraid to get tired." - Phoebe Wright

What was your favorite sport in middle school?
Track of course! The day we ran the mile in PE was always my favorite day of the year, so getting to run at practice was something I always looked forward to.  

Can you share your first sports bra experience?
I can't say I remember, which must be a good thing!  

What is your absolutely favorite piece of #flystyle and why?
I love the Aero Jacket! You can wear it with any outfit.  

If you could give one piece of advice to a 12 year old girl, what would it be? 
Just be yourself and don't apologize for it.  

Tell us about your favorite place you have ever traveled to:

I love Portland. I'm a huge foodie and love exploring places I visit for races.

Being a college track coach...which I also do!
