Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
"To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift." - Pre

Why do you run?
I run because when I don't, I'm a menace to society.

What is your favorite place to run?
East Coast: the dirt roads of my hometown in Vermont. West Coast: any trail in my new playground of a state.

Running gear you can't live without?
Oiselle Distance Shorts in every color ever, hoppy bears, caffeinated nuun, compression sleeves, my Nathan's handheld, and a closet full of sweats and spandex. Do other runners count as gear? I need them too.

When you're not running where would we find you?
Registering for a race, dumping salt on my food, hiking a mountain, jumping on a plane, train or automobile to visit friends (probably from the internet), or offering to hold someone's beer and lend them my smartphone after convincing them to sign up for their first marathon.

What is your favorite post-race treat?
A big IPA and a apple fritter.

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
I'd pop Without Limits into the DVD player and have something by Chelsea Handler on my bedside table.
