  • How did you become part of MYB?
    My fiancé, Mike, wanted to check it out, so I decided to tag along!
  • Why did you start walking/running?
    My sister is a runner and she told me I could be one too (she's the sporty one in the family), so I started running and I liked it. I also had too much fun in college and had to try to combat that. 
  • What is your favorite post race/cheat meal?
    Beeeeeeeeeeeer and pizzzzzzzzzza s
  • If you could have one super power, what would it be & why?
    I would choose the power of persuasion - like Kilgrave from Marvel's Jessica Jones, but good :) 
  • If you could run with any celebrity, who would you choose?
    would love to run with Scott Jurek! He is a sponsored ultra runner, but he is a very down-to-earth guy who just enjoys the sport. He has also leisurely run through the grand canyon with his wife and young child and I think that's a beautiful thing.
