Proudest running moments: Philadelphia Marathon 2014. I had a goal of sub-3:00 and everything went right on that day. I felt good, ran a negative split in the second half, and finished feeling strong. I couldn’t have asked for much more on marathon day.

Favorite quote: “Don’t try to rush progress. Remember–a step forward, no matter how small, is a step in the right direction. Keep believing.” -Kara Goucher

Favorite place to run: The country roads around Greenville, Illinois, where I went to college.

Best running advice you’ve ever received: Run for something greater than yourself.

Favorite post-race meal: The weekend pancake special at Dockside Saloon: two blueberry pancakes (pumpkin in the fall), two eggs, two strips of bacon, two sausages + coffee and OJ- the works!
