Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
Do not regret growing older. It is a privelege denied to many.

Why do you run?
At first it was to get in shape after having my kids and to be able to compete in triathlongs and XTERRAs. While I still do it for those reasons, I now also do it for my sanity, to enjoy the outdoors, to get the lead (Pb) out, to spend time with my friends, to spend time with myself, to make me a better person, mother, friend, wife, sister, employee...

What is your favorite place to run?
Soaring Eagle Park for trail running, or along East Lake Sammamish Trail. I also really like the treadmill.

Running gear you can't live without?
My shoes and a good, ironclad sports bra.

What is your favorite local running store?
Plateau Runner

When you're not running where would we find you?
On a bike or cuddling with my kids, or in the winter on some cross country skiis.

What is your favorite post-race treat?
A nap and then some FroYo with all kinds of un-healthy goodness on top.

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
Pitch Perfect and Star Magazine, it's not a book but I've got a short attention span!
