Best race experience: 2019 Ohio Valley Conference Championships! The whole race was a beautiful blur, but somehow found another gear and passed a couple people in the final stretch to get 2nd…but more importantly got to be apart of the EIU Cross Country team being OVC runner-up champions…by only 6 points.
Best running experience: Hard to pick just one! Long runs on trails with great conversation and even better company can’t be beat.
Passion(s) outside of running: Reading, hiking, lots of dog parks with my lab, and watching some questionable reality TV:)
Favorite post-run meal: Potatoes, asparagus, Brussels, mushrooms, all of which are heavily salted and baked in the oven!
