  • How did you become part of MYB?
    I found MYB on Instagram and I immediately was drawn to the story of its inception.
  • When did you start walking/running? 
    I went out for Cross Country in HS after, no kidding, I watched Forrest Gump for the first time and I thought, I could do that.  I happened to be pretty good.
  • What is your favorite post race/cheat meal? 
    In the form of a liquid diet, nothing beats a cold, well earned beer, or two.
  • If you could have one super power what would it be and why? 
    Flying of course.  I think people that run a lot of miles truly have a desire to fly.
  • If you could run with any celebrity who would you choose and why? 
    I am intrigued by successful, giving CEOs and Howard Shultz, the CEO of Starbucks is on the top of my list.
