Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
“Can I give more?" The answer is usually: "Yes" - Paul Tergat

Why do you run?
I run to stay fit, happy and healthy. I run to prove to myself that I am capable of anything when I put my mind to it. I run because crossing the finish line and seeing that you beat your previous personal best is one of the greatest feelings.

What is your favorite place to run?
Shawnee Mission Park. It's hilly with shaded and sunny trails, some off road trails and tons of different routes. You name it, this park has it! It's a great place to train.

Running gear you can't live without?
My gps watch, sunglasses and my running water bottle. Kansas can get hot and muggy quick; staying hydrated is key!

What is your favorite local running store?
Gary Gribbles

When you're not running where would we find you?
Cycling, playing indoor soccer, or taking my dogs to the dog park.

What is your favorite post-race treat?
Edy's Fruit Bars; cools you down and are delicious!

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
Finding Nemo and A Brief History of Time.
