Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
There are so many! But I'll limit this to one quote and one mantra. I try to live and run by the following: "Don't be afraid to give up the good and go for the great." And "Dream it: Do it."

Why do you run?
I run to be the best me. Simple as that.

What is your favorite place to run?
All my favorite runs are with dirt below me, trees around me, and the sun shining on me. I really love trails.

Running gear you can't live without?
I'm pretty lowkey but I can't run without my beloved Brooks shoes and my trusty non-GPS stopwatch.

What is your favorite local running store?
Big River Running in St. Louis, MO and Runner's Roost in Lakewood, CO - it's all about the community these stores provide.

When you're not running where would we find you?
If I'm not doing the standard work or sleep thing, you can almost definitely find me hiking/exploring Colorado, strolling/lounging in Denver's Wash Park, or persuing/sampling at Whole Foods!

What is your favorite post-race treat?
Ice Cream!

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
Garden State or any of the Harry Potter series books.
