Favorite Quote:

My running mantra is “Pay the Price” – Pay the price during training or pay the price on race day. Also, pay the price during the race or pay the price at the finish line.

Why do you run?

I run because it makes me feel like I can accomplish anything. All it takes is a few miles to start my day off right or end it on a high note.    I also love running because of all the wonderful people I’ve met through the sport. Runners are the best folk around – so welcoming and encouraging of everyone, no matter how slow or fast. There’s not a bad apple in the bunch!

Favorite place to run:

I love running along Milwaukee’s lakefront. Beautiful views, no matter the season, and plenty of paths so you never get bored with your route!

Running gear you can not live without:

Brooks Defyance shoes, Oiselle Distance Shorts and Sparkly Soul headbands!

When not running where would we find you?

Trying new restaurants or bars around town or in the kitchen trying out a new recipe.

Favorite post race fuel:

Immediately after a race, I drink chocolate milk – it’s the perfect recovery food! A few hours later, I like eating pizza or a burger for a post-race treat!

Song you want to hear at the finish line:

Katy Perry’s Roar – that song always puts a smile on my face!
