Favorite post-race meal? 
Thai food and coconut bliss ice cream for dessert.
 
What is your must-have piece of running gear?
Roga Visor and Mini Fancy Stride Shorts.

Do you have a training philosophy?
I have a 5% improvement rule. Every training cycle I do 5% more: could be more mileage, speed work, weights, stretching, or more naps!

What is your favorite place to run?
Forest Park in Portland, Oregon. I love running on trails.
 
Why do you run?
I am addicted to exercise! I like the challenge of pushing the limits of my body. We can always improve a little!
 
What is your favorite workout?
Long tempo runs

What is your favorite activity, when not running?
I like adventurous travel. I think exploring new places and getting lost is fun. I also really like going to outdoor markets, picking berries, dancing, going to vegan restaurants, and spending time with my husband.

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book they would be…
Good Will Hunting and Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand.
