Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
Man is so made, that whenever anything fires his soul, impossibilities vanish. - La Fontaine

Just keep swimming - Dory the Fish

Why do you run?
I run because I can and nothing on this earth makes me feel more alive than crossing the line. I run to see things differently, my favorite way to explore a new place is tor run through the streets. Running is also a great way to relieve  stress and stay healthy.

What is your favorite place to run?
5 Points Neighborhood in Huntsville, Alabama. It never gets old; the neighborhood has its own personality! I also love to run on the Chattanooga, TN waterfront. They have a great 8 mile trail down by the river.

Running gear you can't live without?
Pony tail holder, Garmin, chapstick and Oiselle Distance Shorts.

What is your favorite local running store?
First Place Athletics

When you're not running where would we find you?
Spending time with my hubs, trying to teach our two cats tricks, or most importantly traveling. We try to travel as much as possible.

What is your favorite post-race treat?
Breakfast Quesadillas, a frothy beer or a Mr. Pibb.

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
Love Actually and any book by Emily Giffin.
