Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
"Winning has nothing to do with racing. Most days don't have races anyway. Winning is about struggle and effort and optimism, and never, ever, ever, giving up." - Amby Burfoot

Why do you run?
I run because it makes me feel peaceful and centered. It gives me a chance to be unwired from the computer, phone, and the fast-paced life. I also run because I feel a sense of community with my training partners and fellow runners that I share the sport with. I find my "happy" place where I run.

What is your favorite place to run?
In California, I love to run on the bluffs above of Capinteria State Beach. In Oregon, I love to run at Pre's Trail in Eugene.

Running gear you can't live without?
I could not live without my Oiselle Long Roga shorts, my Lesko bras, and my amphipod hand-held water bottle.

What is your favorite local running store?
The Runner's Lane

When you're not running where would we find you?
When I am not running, you would most likely find me in my 4th grade classroom, at a spin class or hanging out with the Santa Clarita runners.

What is your favorite post-race treat?
Chocolate milk and Jelly Belly Beans.

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
The Sound of Music and Running for Your LIfe by Lopez Lemong.
