Best running experience: When traveling, I love to explore different cities while running. Some of my favorite memories include running in London’s Hyde Park, the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris, NYC’s Central Park, and running laps around Cusco’s Plaza de Armas with my mother.

Of course, some of the best running trails can be found in Oregon (although I may be a little biased). Central Oregon’s Smith Rock is a place that I hold dear to my heart, because it is where I shared one of the best days ever with my fiancé. We ran around the picturesque trails and cooled off in the surrounding stream after. It was a day that I long to relive.

Passions outside of running: Traveling, hiking, playing soccer with my family, drinking coffee, listening to running podcasts, watching my kids do silly things, Netflix and chillin’ with my mister, and indulging in sweet treats.

Favorite post-run meal: A big juicy burger! If it’s earlier in the morning, then breakfast is my jam. I’m talking eggs benedict with a blueberry chai pancake on the side and coffee… lots and lots of coffee.
