Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
Don't let fear decide your future. - Shalane Flanagan

Why do you run?
I run because I can! I've had multiple sclerosis for 10 years. When I was diagnosed, I thought my walking days were numbered. So I started running, and I haven't looked back.

What is your favorite place to run?
Seward Park in Seattle

Running gear you can't live without?
Oiselle Distance shorts and Mio Mesh Tank.

What is your favorite local running store?
It's coming in summer of 2015!

When you're not running where would we find you?
Watching Arrested Development with my husband and daughter.

What is your favorite post-race treat?

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
The Princess Bride, even though I know every line by heart and Infinite Jest, because it is long and I haven't read it yet.
