Years Running: 15ish

Age: 36

Upcoming races: Mercer Island Half, Badger Mountain 50 Mile, Sun Mountain 25k, Beacon Rock 25K, Needles 50K, Cascade Crest 100

Current goals: Cascade Crest & to have some fun training for it

Long-term, big shot goals that you someday hope to achieve with running: Cascade Crest is about as far ahead as I can think right now….

Tell us about your running accomplishment that you’re most proud of and why: Might be because it’s the most recent, but I’m most proud of the Eiger 101k this summer. It was very hard for me mentally and physically, but I felt like I finished strong and was left with great memories.

Favorite part about being a runner: The days when it feels easy. I also love the feeling after races. I often feel a little separate from, and proud of, my body and what it can do. And being able to eat more.

Favorite Workout: Anything on trail is more fun than anything on road or track

Most Challenging Workout: Time trial of any sort and getting out to do anything in the dark and rain.

Best races: Eiger 101 – survived! Sunriver Half Marathon – PR’d after not running for 9 months due to injury; Portland Marathon 2012 – first time BQ

Running words of wisdom: During hard spots in races I like to remember that it always gets easier again.
