Best race experience: Doing the Ragnar Great River- Was in the van with a couple of my best friends and a few strangers who felt like family by the end of the weekend! Having a non-stop party for 36 hours complete with middle-of-the-night forest dance parties, sleeping (very little) in a school yard and getting lost in a cornfield. So many shenanigans 🙂

Best running experience: It’s so hard to think of a single experience. Overall, I’d have to say it’s the people I’ve met and relationships I’ve formed. It’s the way the entire sport and community have taught me so much about supporting each other and has helped me find resiliency and work-life balance.

Passion(s) outside of running: Hiking, camping, snowboarding
My cat, Pekoe
Medical education
Finding the best croissants in any given city

Favorite post-run meal: Breakfast! Hot coffee, some sort of scramble, HASH BROWNS. Oh and don’t forget the donut on the side.
