Why did you start running?

My first love is obstacle course racing, so I knew I needed to do something to help get me from obstacle to obstacle without dying.

How long have you been running?

I've been running about a year and a half.

What is your favorite thing about running?

I really enjoy seeing how far I can push my body.

What are your goals? 

In 2019 I pushed myself and completed races I'd never dreamed I'd even attempt.  2020 is going to be more social runs and gym time.  500lb leg press, here I come!!

What is your favorite race?

Local race: I love Zombies Like Brains 8K.  Great course, cause, and always a fun day. 

Travel race: Anything at Disney

What are your current running shoes?

What would you tell someone who's hesitant to start running?

It's OK to walk.  Don't get caught up thinking that you have to run the whole time.  Intervals are amazing.  I'm a gym rat who enjoys the fun of races, so intervals allow me to participate and not get injured..  Also, you are never alone at a race.  The running community is very friendly and supportive.
