Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
Don't let anyone or anything dictate what you can or cant' do.

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?
Andrew Molera State Park in Big Sur, CA.

Running gear you can't live without?
My Sole insoles and my Oiselle Mio Mesh Tank.

What is your favorite local running store?
Don't have one yet! I just moved to Seattle!

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?
Vegan Pizza

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
The Princess Bride and Infinite Jest.
