Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
“I can be changed by what happens to me but I refuse to be reduced by it.” – Maya Angelou

What is your favorite post-race meal?
Cottage cheese and applesauce. 

What is your must-have piece of running gear?
Race day – my gold bandanna, Training – my ironman watch

Do you have a training philosophy?
Enjoy and take pleasure in every step of the process. It’s not the first nor is it the last breath that matters, it’s all of the ones taken in between that count. 

What is your favorite place to run? 
McKenzie River Trail along the McKenzie River and Hwy. 126 in Oregon.

Why do you run?
I run for the feeling I get upon having exerted every ounce of emotional and physical resolve during training or competition; for that feeling of self fulfillment that is only achieved by running.

What animal do you most resemble in your racing and why?
A puma. Poised, confident and powerful yet ever so stealthy. A stalk and ambush racer.

What is your favorite activity, when not running?
I enjoy hiking and boating.

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
Date Night and the 4th Harry Potter.
