Favorite Quote:

Do one thing every day that scares you. – Eleanor Roosevelt

Why do you run?

I run so I don’t run away.  Running is my anti-depressant and stress relief as I juggle two kids, a couple of part time jobs, and all the things that come with a busy life.

Favorite place to run:

I love to run on the National Mall and look at all of the monuments.

Running gear you can not live without:

I can’t live without my compression socks.  They help my cranky calf survive the high mileage that I like to run.

When not running where would we find you?

Curled up on the couch with a good book and a craft beer.

Favorite post race fuel:

I’m a huge fan of chocolate milk immediately after a long run.

Song you want to hear at the finish line:

Eye of the Tiger
