Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
"That's the thing about running: your greatest runs are rarely measured by racing success. They are moments in time when running allows you to see how wonderfuyl your life is." - Kara Goucher

Why do you run?
I run to be free, for the pure moment of solace during a hectic day, to explore, to test my limits and expany my horizons. I run because my best friends are runners and I love the connection we still have despite being millions of miles apart. I run because its my favorite part of my day.

What is your favorite place to run?
Any place except industrial parks, yuck! I enjoy where I'm living in Ithaca with trails, dirt roads, the lake and the hills. Makes everyday an adventure!

Running gear you can't live without?
My Oiselle Lux Layer, my favorite, oh and typically shoes!

What is your favorite local running store?
The one I work at: Finger Lakes Running Company in Ithaca, NY!

When you're not running where would we find you?
Mostly drinking coffee/tea or on my TT bike!

What is your favorite post-race treat?
Ice Creammmm.

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
Tommy Boy and The Help or Once a Runner.
