Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training, racing, and life?
“I want this, I've got this!"

What is your favorite post-race meal?
Anything sweet, preferably a donut.

What is your must-have piece of running gear?
My running watch for sure, can't go anywhere without it!

Do you have a training philosophy?
Just to trust in the process and do the little things and when things get tough, "hammer down", as my coach would say.

What is your favorite place to run?
Lisbon, Iowa: where it takes multiple laps around town to get a decent run.

Why do you run?
In the past few years I've really found a love for not only running but the process of training. I've always been competitive, and goal driven and running allows me to push myself to become the best version of me.

What is your favorite activity, when not running?
Trying out new recipes and experimenting in the kitchen!

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be...
Blades of Glory and any psychological thriller!
