Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
"Never stop improving."

What is your favorite post-race treat?
A Chipolte burrito bowl...and a beer!

What is your favorite place to run?
The Delaware and Raritan Canal tow path! It's a 40+ mile stretch of tightly packed dirt gravel along the Delaware and Raritan Rivers. It's filled with runners, walkers, and bikers on early Saturday and Sunday mornings and it's perfect place to log some serious miles!

Why do you run?
I started running after hanging up my swimming goggles post-college, and immediately fell in love. Something that started just as a way to stay in shape turned into a love affair of constantly striving to improve, and I can't imagine my life without it. There's nothing quite like that post-run feeling!

Where would we find you when you're not running?
In the kitchen! I love cooking and baking, and sharing my creations with others.

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
The Shawshank Redemption and The Great Gatsby.
