Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
“Baby we were born to run” – Bruce Springsteen 

Why do you run?
Running is my release, my therapy, my gravity. I run to think, see new places, work out problems, escape a mile long to do list. I run when I am sad, happy, or completely blah. I run when life is great and when life is the last thing I want to deal with. I run for the physical stress of putting one foot in front of the other, swinging my arms, breathing hard and sweating. I run for the balance I maintain for the rest of the day. I run to race, to share love of the sport with others. I run to make friends, develop relationships, talk about everything and nothing over miles of terrain. 

What is your favorite place to run?
The boardwalk along the Atlantic Ocean from Spring Lake to Asbury Park, NJ 

Running gear you can't live without?
Gloves – my hands are always freezing!!! And sunglasses.

What is your favorite local running store?
Miles Ahead Sports, Sea Girt NJ 

When you're not running where would we find you?
In school - I am studying to be a physical therapist or at the beach with a book in hand. 

What is your favorite post-race treat?
Cheeseburger 

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
Remember the Titans (or Pretty Woman depending on my mood) and To Kill A Mockingbird
