I got to go to Saskatchewan for the 2023 NACAC Mountain & Trail Running Championships in 2023 and wear a USA kit.
Parents, Steve and Laurie, are avid runners; sister Emma competed for NAU collegiately and is the reason I started running. She was recruited to the local track team. I didn't but just tagged along.
I kept a betta fish named Kevin in my locker during high school. He was eventually evicted but lived to be nearly five years old.
I snuck into the elite corral at CIM in 2022 to run with the top athletes. I didn't bring any nutrition and only had three weeks to train for the race after the cross country season but still managed to hit the standard.
