Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. Do the thing you think you cannot do." - Eleanor Roosevelt

Why do you run?
I run because it allows me the opportunity to clear my mind, dream my biggest dreams and conquer the impossible. It is my time to dream, wish and be adventurous.

What is your favorite place to run?
The Arboretum, Green Lake, or along the Charles River in Boston. I also love to run in new cities and explore places early in the morning!

Running gear you can't live without?
I am in love with my Rogas and I love a good post run cozy coat (like my new Mac Jacket) or a soft tee shirt to change into in the summer. I also wear my watch on nearly every run.

What is your favorite local running store?
Super Jock and Jill in Seattle.

When you're not running where would we find you?
Likely at a coffee shop, reading a good book, or travelling!

What is your favorite post-race treat?
A hazelnut Americano with steamed breve and a breakfast sandwich from Essential Bakery.

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
The Holiday and Mile Markers by Kristin Armstrong.
