Best running experience: During college, I studied abroad in Morocco, and one weekend we traveled to a small coastal city called Essaouira. My friends and I went for a run at sunset, at first winding through the twists and turns of the old city, and ending up on the beach. We ran a few miles, then dove into the ocean as the sun went down.
Best racing experience: When I crossed the Broadway Bridge and realized I was close to finishing my first marathon, which had been a life goal I never thought I could achieve. Looking back across all of the marathons since, that moment of pride and relief still tops them all.
Passions outside of running: Backpacking, traveling, music, learning, my family and friends, making the world a better place.
Favorite post-run meal: A gigantic glass of chocolate milk, plus breakfast foods (pancakes, eggs benedict, or a giant bagel sandwich).
