Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
"Running to him was real: the way he did it was the realest thing he knew. It was all joy and woe, hard as a diamond; it made him weary beyond comprehension. But it also made him free." - John L. Parker

Why do you run?
I run for many reasons: to free myself from the daily grind, to enjoy nature, to achieve goals, to feel empowered, and to socialize with my friends, and make new ones!  What it really comes down to for me is that running makes all aspects of life more vivid and meaningful

What is your favorite place to run?
Discovery Park in Seattle.

Running gear you can't live without?
Oiselle Mac Rogas and an awesome pair of shoes.

What is your favorite local running store?
Super Jock 'n' Jill in Seattle: the staff is knowledgeable and helpful!

When you're not running where would we find you?
In my garden or at a local brewery.

What is your favorite post-race treat?
IPAs and nachos!

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
Ahab's Wife by Sena Jeter Naslund and Superbad - never get sick of that one!
