Favorite Quote:

I’ve learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk {RUN} down an even brighter path.” – Soledad O’Brien

Why do you run?

I run because some times it’s the only time of the day where I’m completely disconnected. I run because I love fresh air. I run to encourage young girls that healthy in beautiful. I run because races are always a blast! I also run for the beer at the end of the race!

Favorite place to run:

The National Mall. Washington, DC.

Running gear you can not live without:

My Nike TOMTOM GPS watch and my iPod shuffle.

When not running where would we find you?

Probably on the couch catching up on my neglected DVR.

Favorite post race fuel:

Pizza from & Pizza in DC!

Song you want to hear at the finish line:

Muse – “Uprising”
