Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
“If you are not smiling, you are doing it wrong."  I am not the fastest or the slowest runner, but I am the happiest and that keeps me going for more.

Why do you run?
Because I can and it comes naturally.

What is your favorite place to run?
Lincoln has a wonderful multi-use trail system. With 128 miles of trails, I always have a great place to run. Rock Island Trail is especially nice during the first snowfall. Any trail in Colorado is always a favorite away from home.

Running gear you can't live without?
Oiselle Distance Shorts.

What is your favorite local running store?
The LIncoln Running Company

When you're not running where would we find you?
In the garden, taking photos or playing with the cats.

What is your favorite post-race treat?
An ice bath. Indian food the next day is always a must.

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
The Royal Tenenbaums and anything by David Sedaris.
