Favorite Part About Being a Runner

I love being outside, moving through nature, and covering ground quickly. I love pushing my boundaries and expanding my comfort on increasingly varied terrain. I love competing and seeing what I can do in challenging settings.

Best Races

2019 Mount Marathon, easily my best race ever and the most special race environment I’ve ever experienced. I trained hard and specifically, executed my race plan, pushed to my absolute limit, and achieved my loftiest goal of breaking 1 hour, with only 5 seconds to spare.
