Best running experience: I don’t necessarily have one specific experience, but one of my favorite things about running is being able to explore new places while on a run. Whenever we travel, I love to research running routes that allow me to experience a new city from a different perspective. Some of my most memorable runs have been through Old San Juan in Puerto Rico, over the Williamsburg Bridge from Brooklyn to Manhattan, and on a guided run tour of Amsterdam.

Passions outside of running:
Electric Vehicles, specifically Teslas (and our EV podcast, Supercharged Podcast)
Traveling with my husband

Favorite post-run meal: First, a Diet Coke! Then a black bean burger with lots of cheese and onions (my favorite is the New Seasons black bean cheddar cake)! If it’s post-race, I’ll also have to have greasy fries and a Bloody Mary. Sometimes I’ll substitute the drink for a chocolate malt.
