I don't come from a running family but have always been well-supported by friends, teammates, coaches and others along the way. My partner is my biggest fan and helps me keep perspective and stay motivated to chase my dreams even though he's stationed overseas so we only get to see each other every few months.
Personally, professionally and in running, one of the greatest senses of accomplishment I've experienced thus far was black women of all ages reaching out after seeing me run the Boston Marathon, saying they loved seeing me up there in the professional field. Some even want to run it now, too!
Long runs have always been and still are my least favorite part of training as a distance runner and the path I've chosen as a professional runner/marathoner has me confronting that demon on a regular basis (especially on race day).

Favorite Running Memory
My college team winning ACC Cross Country when I had a terrible day personally and didn't even make our top 7! There was so much good to celebrate despite my personal disappointment.
