Proudest Running Moments:
1) Being a Pacer for Nike+ Run Club in NYC for their “Summer of Speed Fastest Mile” event. It was really inspiring to experience another runner’s best moment.
2) Completing my first half marathon in Philly 2015. 4 months prior to that, I’d never run more than 5 miles. And when my pacer dropped out the day before the race, I almost backed out, too. I’m glad I stuck with it – it ended up being a fantastic course and I hit both of my goals – not stopping even once and breaking 2 (completed it in 154:32). I’ll never forget the feeling of crossing that Half finish line for the first time!

Best Running Advice: Run the mile you’re in.
