Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Why do you run?
Running gives me the confidence to constantly set new goals to challenge myself past my limits and see just how much I can accomplish. it clears my head and helps me release stress and anxiety. I love being outside in the fresh air, experiencing the changing seasons when I'm out on a run, whether the chill of winter or the heat of summer or the trees blossoming in spring and changing colors in autumn. I run races because I love feeling a part of a community of people who are all committed to changing their lives for the better through running. 

What is your favorite place to run?
Central Park in NYC

Running gear you can't live without?
Oiselle "born + raced in NY" 50/50 tee (the softest shirt I own), Oiselle Lesley Knickers, Oakley sunglasses, and yes my Garmin 410 watch!

What is your favorite local running store?
JackRabbit NYC and Gubbins Running Away in East Hampton, NY.

When you're not running where would we find you?
In the kitchen baking something delicious or writing (a paper for grad school and short stories for fun).

What is your favorite post-race treat?
Burger and Fries

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
Love Actually and The Little Prince.
