"So far in my professional career I am most proud of my performance at the Boston Marathon in 2023. It was my first Boston experience and I had a rocky buildup that signaled a poor race. Although the race (2:28:45) was not a PR, it was a huge accomplishment for me to get to the finish with a decent time after facing adversity in the buildup."
"I ran my first marathon in 2021 and that race is still my PR to this day. It was a banner day that launched my career. Since then I have had some glimmers of success, but have also had to come back from injury, which is never easy and always humbling. I am so happy to be happy and healthy going into this year's Olympic Trails."
