Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
"Running is just the work you put in and the clock. You can't cheat yourself. If you don't put in the miles, you can't go to the starting line thinking you're going to pull a miracle out of nowhere.
You get exactly as much as you put into it."  - Desiree Davilla

Why do you run?
Running makes me feel alive and totally free. It makes me giddy. It makes me feel like a badass. It makes me smile. It makes me who I am.

What is your favorite place to run?
Katama, MA on Martha’s Vineyard.

Running gear you can't live without?
Oiselle distance short, iPod, and Garmin Forerunner 110.

What is your favorite local running store?
Greater Boston Running Company in Lexington, MA.

What is your favorite post-race treat?
A tall soy mocha.

Where would we find you when you're not running?
In my car picking up or dropping off my children.

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
Rushmore and Lonesome Dove.
