  • How did you become part of MYB?
    One day, I saw a post on social media that FLOTUS (Robin) wanted to start a run group & I showed up the 1st day & have been running with the group ever since.
  • Why did you start walking/running?
    I started to run to help lose weight at first but after doing my first Crescent City Classic, I took it more serious & it had become my main way to staying mentally & physically healthy.
  • What is your favorite post race/cheat meal?
    Beer & if she's a sponsor at the race, a bowl of Jambalaya Girl rice. If it's a cheat meal, tacos, tacos, and MORE tacos!
  • If you could have one super power, what would it be & why?
    It would be speed, like my favorite superhero, The Flash. I would never be late for an event and I could run with all of my Krewe at a race.
  • If you could run with any celebrity, who would you choose?
    He isn't really a celebrity but I would say Jesus. Yep Jesus! Why? You can't tell me the hair, the beard, the vision to know where he's going doesn't make him a trail runner. Just saying!
