Tell us about your running accomplishment that you’re most proud of and why: Breaking 12:00 in the 3200 was a big deal for me. I remember training hard on the track to get past that barrier, and it’s one of the first times I remember putting in a lot of work and seeing that hard work pay off.
Favorite part about being a runner: The mental clarity getting out and going for a provides. I would go completely nuts if I couldn’t spend a few hours a week outside putting in miles.
