Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
"In every true champion you will find, desire, determination, passion for the sport, and the courage to be the best." - NCAA Hall of Champions

What is your favorite post-race meal?
Burgers, burgers and burgers. Preferably one that has avocado and bacon.

What is your must-have piece of running gear?
My watch. I wear it all the time. I truly feel naked if I leave the house without it.

Do you have a training philosophy?
Not everything is going to happen the way you want it. So I always tell myself to train smart, train hard and enjoy the process.

What is your favorite place to run?
Hands down I love trail runs. One of my favorite places to run is a place in Chapel Hill, NC called the Woodlands.

Why do you run?
I run because there isn't anything else I feel that truly shows you more of who you are as a person. Running has given me the world, and not literally, but I've grown and matured into the woman I am today because of my two feet and the road.

What is your favorite activity, when not running?
When I am not running, you can find me at Starbucks or at home looking at fashion, craft projects or anything related to interior design.

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
Love and Basketball and Once a Runner.
