Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
“Tomorrow never comes."

What is your favorite post-race meal?
A hamburger and sweet potato fries.

What is your must-have piece of running gear?

Do you have a training philosophy?
Listen to your body; don't get greedy and take more than it's willing to give. My coach has pretty much drilled this into my brain.

What is your favorite place to run?
Steamboat Ditch in Reno; it's flat and dirt, perfect for any run or workout.

Why do you run?
I started running because I needed something to do until my mom could get me from school. But now, I run because I think it would be a waste to not use the talent I've been given. I want to see how fast I can be!

What animal do you most resemble?
A cougar because I like to hang back and feel out each race situation then attack when the time is right. Also, I went to Washington State..once a coug, always a coug.

What is your favorite activity, when not running?

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
Fight Club and Jonathan Livingston Seagull.
