What is your favorite quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
Believe in what makes you smile, brings you joy and makes you feel free. It is then, that you are free to conquer the goal set forth by you!

What was your favorite sport in middle school?
My favorite sport in middle school was softball. I played catcher because I got to wear all the gear. I loved ripping off the face mask any chance that I could get.    

Can you share your first sports bra experience?
 I would “borrow” my mom sports bras. I hated having to shop in “that” section of the store.  

What is your absolutely favorite piece of #flystyle and why?
I will forever and always be in love with the Flyte Long Sleeve. I wish I lived in a colder place so I could wear all the color, everyday of the week.   

If you could give one piece of advice to a 12 year old girl, what would it be? 
Stand up straight and be proud of what you are made of. I developed early and hated it. I would hunch over so no-one would notice. It took until my junior year of high school to wear a real bra and be happy with what I was blessed with.  

Tell us about your favorite place you have ever traveled to:
I still cannot get over how much I loved Portugal. I had an amazing time in Lieira this summer and can’t wait to go back. I hear that Portugal has some amazing vineyards and I feel like I need to make sure they are.  

What alternative career do you fantasize about?
 I would love to be a zookeeper. Anytime I go to the Zoo, the little kid comes out in me. I would love to work with the big cats.  

What is your superpower?  
I can spin in circles without getting dizzy or throwing up.
