Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
It is suppose to hurt.

Why do you run?
I Iove everything about running. I love my dear friends that I wouldn't have met without running who push me when I am tired, encourage me when I fail and celebrate my success. I love the feel of a good, hard workout. I love the solitude of running in the country and organizing my life in my head. I love running gear. Whey do I run? I wouldn't be me without it.

What is your favorite place to run?
Country roads on a beautiful day.

Running gear you can't live without?
Anything with a good zipper pocket. I have stuff to carry - keys, gu, tissue so a pocket is a must. The Oiselle Stride Short is just perfect.

What is your favorite local running store?
Lincoln Running Company

When you're not running where would we find you?
Chasing my three girls around or work. That's it for excitement - mom, run, work. It's a pretty sweet gig.

What is your favorite post-race treat?
Latte! Is it a treat if you have it every day?

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
My Ipad so that I could have lot's of books and movies!
