Best running experience: The best running experience was last fall when I ran on the Fairmount Loop for the first time. It was a beautiful fall day and I was with Jaime and Krysta and it was the first time since college that I truly enjoyed the long run again. After a ten year hiatus from running, it took a while to get back to a happy place with longer runs and it was great to have my friends with me.

Passions outside of running: I love to travel! I feel like we always learn so much about ourselves when we are out of our comfort zones and in new places. As a former soccer player, I enjoy following the Portland Thorns and of course the World Cup.

Favorite post-run meal: My favorite post run (very long run) meal is Scotties Defino pizza…. and if it’s that time of year (March-ish and the whole reason I trained for the Mesa-Phoenix Half Marathon) New Seasons Birthday Cake Ice Cream. Delish!
