Training philosophy:

Train hard, win easy!

Always listen to your body and instead of counting miles, make the miles count.

Favorite or go-to workout: 8x1k alternating with (4)hurdles/without hurdles. + 3x500m with hurdles. 2-3 minutes rest in between.

What I like to eat/drink before a run: Oatmeal before a run or a bagel always with water

Favorite quote that inspires me: Champions are made when nobody is watching

Why I run: I run because it feels natural. The human body is meant to move and I want to see how much mine can take. I also run for longevity

Where to find me when I’m not running: Home sleeping, studying at Starbucks or at school.
