Best running experience: My best running experiences have been on solo runs out in nature, such as Wildwood Trail in Forest Park, the high desert while at a college cross country camp in Mexico, or most recently running along a winding road by the Washington coast with no other person in sight. In those instances, I’ve taken in the total silence and got chills thinking about how vast the world is and how small I am.
Best racing experience: The Tenacious 10K in 2018. It was one of those races where everything just clicked and I felt like I was floating, but at a faster pace than I’d ever held before. Kara Goucher, one of my running heroes, was running the 10 miler as a workout and I was able to stick with her for a few miles before she split off. I not only dipped below 38 minutes for the first time, but went sub-37:00. I was in shock. It was a surreal experience.
Passions outside of running: Writing music, singing, and playing piano for my recording project Pink Feathers. I’m mildly obsessed with ballet and started taking lessons as an adult about six years ago. My favorite way to relax is baking while listening to podcasts. Also very into sci-fi/fantasy movies, television, & lit!
Favorite post-run meal: Give me a juicy cheeseburger on a potato bun with a cold cider and I will be a VERY happy camper. Also, peanut butter anything.
