Best running experience: I’ve enjoyed running in new places while I traveled for my job in Maryland, meeting new people and making new friends through running. I also enjoy trail running in Forrest Park and exploring new trails.

Passion(s) outside of running: Hiking in the PNW, traveling to a new city, cooking, cross-fit

Favorite post-run meal:
