What is your favorite quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
"May I never be complete. May I never be content. May I never be perfect." —Chuck Palahniuk

What was your favorite sport in middle school?
Cross country! I was exposed to running early, and have always found solace darting through wooded single-track trails! 

Can you share your first sports bra experience?
I’ve never been very chesty, my first sports bra experience was more of desire than necessity.  

What is your absolute favorite piece of #flystyle and why?
Call Her Vest - I haven’t taken it off since I got it! 

If you could give one piece of advice to a 12 year old girl, what would it be? 
Be the person you want others to be to you. 

Tell us about your favorite place you have ever traveled to:
Last year I hiked the 170 km tour du Mont Blanc. My favorite places in the world are the ones I need my two feet to get to!  

What alternative career do you fantasize about?
Being a mom :)  

What is your superpower?  
My ability to believe in myself.
