Tell us about your running accomplishment that you’re most proud of and why: I love to train far more than I like to race so I’m most proud of putting in the miles to train for the races I’ve done over the years. I love to run in new places and feel there is no better way to fall in love with a place than by cruising around on running feet…

Favorite part about being a runner: Feeling grateful for what my body can do, washing away the stress with a good sweat, looking up at a distance sign on the freeway noting that some place is 26 miles away and thinking ‘oh I can make it that far on my feet….’ (can’t wait to add ultra distances to this street sign celebration)

Best races: CIM, Seattle Rock n Roll 1/2
