Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
“Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." - George S. Patton, US Army General, 1912 Olympian

Why do you run?
I run because running makes me feel strong and fierce. Running long distance makes me feel like I can accomplish anything in life. If I can run 26.2 miles, I can accomplish other areas in my life such as facing the challenges and meeting deadline at work, overcome any unexpected struggles in life that come my way. Running helps set my mind at ease when my life can get chaotic.

What is your favorite place to run?
Wildwood Trail at Forest Park in Portland, OR and Deschutes River Trail in Bend, OR

Running gear you can't live without?
Distance Short, Winona Tank and Go Joggings, and my Garmin 310XT

What is your favorite local running store?
Fit Right NW in Portland, OR.

When you're not running where would we find you?
Portland food carts or restaurant - I am a total food lover!

What is your favorite post-race treat?
Eggs; I absolutely love any eggs cooked any way!

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
Clueless and Running the Edge: Discovering the Secrets to Better Running and a Better Life.
