Memorable running experiences

  • Rave run: Anywhere I travel I try to find somewhere new and exciting to run! I love to run Central Park in NYC!
  • Race: Richmond 2019. I’m a student of the marathon and this was a day I felt like I put it all together. I PR’ed (2:53) and finished so strong. It was magical.
  • Gone postal run and/or I’d rather forget: September ’16. Navy/Air Force Half. Washington, D.C. Heat, humidity, and trying to run above my fitness level made for a miserable last 3 miles. Ugh.

These are a few of my favorite running things:

  • Vice: Bees, bugs, anything dive bombing my head!
  • Device: Shoes! I usually have at least six pairs in rotation.
  • Advice: Find your purpose in running. Enjoy moving through space. Have fun!
  • Running footwear: Nike everything, especially the NEXT% for racing.
