  • How did you become part of MYB?
    Right before I moved down to New Orleans, I heard Robin on WWOZ talking about Move Ya Brass & I thought "That sounds like fun!" Fast forward to a year later, we had moved I needed to get back in shape after having major surgery & also wanted to meet new people.  MYB was the perfect answer!
  • Why did you start walking/running?
    I started running when I decided to quit smoking & get healthy. Running reminded me with every step why I never ever wanted to smoke again.
  • What is your favorite post race/cheat meal?
    Icy cold gin martini & a Company Burger (single)
  • If you could have one super power, what would it be & why?
    Super Speed!
  • If you could run with any celebrity, who would you choose?
    Amy Schumer - I love hanging with smart, funny women! (Another reason I love MYB)
