Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
"Courage is grace under pressure." - Ernest Hemmingway

Why do you run?
I run to burn nervous energy, to keep myself grounded, to get perspective, and, on a more measurable level, to improve my cardiovascular health because I have asthma.

What is your favorite place to run?
A shady little trail in my neighborhood.

Running gear you can't live without?
Oiselle Roga Shorts and unfortunately, my asthma inhaler. Hopefully in the future I can rely less on the inhaler and just be a straight shooter with the Rogas. 

When you're not running where would we find you?
Baking in my kitchen or out walking the cutest dog ever.

What is your favorite post-race treat?
French Toast!

Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
Memento and All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy
