Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
"Do the work. Do the analysis, but feel your race. Feel the joy that is running." - Kara Goucher
These words are what guide my training: toughness, dedication and adaptability.

Why do you run?
I run because the mind-body connection makes me feel more alive and resilient/confident. Running is a gift for me to develop, and it is a gift to be shared. Many of my closest friendships got started through running. I have been taught many lessons through running, and I want to keep learning!

What is your favorite place to run?
Seattle's Discovery Park, Green Lake's Woodland Park, and Ravenna Park.

Running gear you can't live without?
A watch with a countdown timer and a shirt that is not 100% cotton.

What is your favorite local running store?
Super Jock and Jill; they are friendly and knowledgeable, support a lot of community runs, employee college runners, and have a generous return policy.

When you're not running where would we find you?
In a library (reading for fun and working on schoolwork for my Marriage and Family Therapy degree) or in my kitchen playing around with food.

What is your favorite post-race treat?
Sweetbread of almost any kind, with nuts and citrus zest and spices or Coach Doris Heritage's chocolate walnut oat cookies with peanut butter smeared on the top.

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
A Spanish Language Bible and Reparando the Documentary.
