Proudest running moment: Portland Marathon 2015. It was a 15 mins PR but most importantly the day when I realized that the best was yet to come. As Ryan Heal once told me, “These are the moments we live for.”

Favorite post-race meal: An iced cold beer and a burger but Mac and Cheese does the trick too.
