Career Highlights
22nd; 2020 US Olympic Team Trials - Marathon; All-American in cross country
I have a 2.5-year-old Vizsla. Her name is Jasper and she's one of my best running buddies. My parents live in Columbus, OH and my younger sister lives in Los Angeles.
Interesting Story
I stopped running competitively after college - just running for fitness and fun - and never really expected to compete at a serious level again. But six years later when I moved to Portland, I joined the BTC Elite group I just found myself pulled back into training and racing.
Favorite Song

I almost never run to music :)

Favorite Breakfast

Breakfast burrito, or pastries

Favorite Running Memory
Finishing the 2020 Trials, coming down the finish knowing I had run my best race, and seeing my teammate Carrie Dimoff, who had finished two spots ahead of me. And then getting to see my family in the chute shortly after that.
