Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. So let's go have a near death experience today people!" - Coach Kline (My coach at UW Green Bay)

Why do you run?
I run for health, happiness and to feel free. I also love the spirit of competition and there really is no greater feeling than a runner's high or nailing a PR.

What is your favorite place to run?
Any trail! Every trail offers something unique and exciting but if I had to pick one I would say UW Green Bay Cofrin Arboretum trails. Many good miles and memories on those trails!

Running gear you can't live without?
Oiselle Roga shorts - they changed my life! And my roadID because it could save my life.

What is your favorite local running store?
Pacers Running Store - Clarendon Store in Arlington, VA.

When you're not running where would we find you?
Working (I love my job as a PACU nurse!), studying for grad school, or cooking/baking and when I'm lucky; snowboarding, snowshoeing or SUPing.

What is your favorite post-race treat?
An Ice cold IPA.

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
Without LImits and Harry Potter
