Best running advice you’ve ever received: When I wanted to quit high school cross country in my freshman year, my coach told me to give it two weeks and see how I felt. In pushing through, I learned that I’ll always be a stronger and more confident runner in two weeks, no matter what pace I run or what injury I’m recovering from.
Favorite post-race meal: A giant burrito, and a lot of chocolate milk.
