Long-term, big shot goals that you someday hope to achieve with running:

I just have my eye on finishing a marathon right now. We’ll see what else I dream up after that.

Tell us about your running accomplishment that you’re most proud of and why:

Beat my goal time for my first half marathon by 20 minutes. I didn’t think that I was capable of even running a half marathon, so finishing with a surprisingly faster time and have fun doing it was really special to me.

Favorite part about being a runner:

I do my best daydreaming when running! I also love having something so accessible to push myself mentally and physically.

Running words of wisdom:

put this quote in your bathroom: “Running is a big question mark that’s there each and every day. It asks you, ‘Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?”
