Racing highlights/PRs (be sure to include event name, distance, and year):
1:30:40 – St. Jude Half Marathon, 2017

Best race experience: I had to double the 5k/10k at my freshman year college conference track meet. It was such a hot day that they had water tables on the track for the 10k. I ended up winning the race and my family was able to be there to see it!
Best running experience: Before moving to Portland I coached high school track and cross country for 5 years. Being able to run and train with the kids and see them progress over the season was one of the best experiences I’ve had with running post college.
Passion(s) outside of running: Biking, hiking, reading, baking, telling people how great Cleveland is, and trying to pet as many dogs as possible
Favorite post-run meal: Breakfast sandwich: avocado, fried egg, tomato, cheese on an everything bagel (pairs well with a mimosa)
