Racing highlights/PRs:
2018 Elk Kings 25K – 3:59:02 – this course was nuts! 5800 feet of elevation gain
2019 Eugene Marathon – 3:50:35 – my first marathon
2019 Shamrock Run Half Marathon – 1:42:04 – PR by 6 minutes

Best race experience: Hood-to-Coast 2018- This was the first race I ran after moving to Portland. I was blown away by the dedication of all of the participants and teams. After 3 racing legs and 30 hours without sleep, crossing the finish line felt incredible.

Best running experience: My best running experience is something I get to enjoy every year when I visit Prince Edward Island on vacation. My favorite route tracks along cliffs 30 ft above the ocean with meadows and potato fields on the other side. It’s beautiful and remote, the best combination.

Passion(s) outside of running: If it’s too steep to run, then I’m hiking it!

Favorite post-run meal: I almost always want sushi or a poke bowl after a long run. My go-to in PDX is the City of Roses poke bowl from Rollin’ Fresh at the Piedmont Station Food Carts.
