Birthdate: 9/13/1991

Favorite shoe: New Balance 890

Favorite distance to race: 15k and marathon

Favorite place to run: along an undulating single track trail, enshrouded by evergreens, deep within a forest in the Pacific Northwest

Favorite post-race meal: 7 Eleven taquitos & a slurpee; chili cheese fries from The Hat; SOUPLANTATION YEAH

Training philosophy: To be a runner, you don’t need the genes for running, only the genes for perseverance and diligence.

Favorite or go-to workout: “Minnesota,” a longer version of the “Michigan.”  It’s: 2 mi, 1.5 mi, 1 mi, 0.5 mi @ 5/10k pace, with 1 mi @ tempo/marathon pace in between each rep.  NO rest!!

What I like to eat/drink before a run: toasted PB & honey sandwich or PB-filled pretzels, gatorade, coffee

Favorite quote that inspires me: “It takes courage to do it, to be a runner. We all found that out a long time ago…Because it’s about more than fatigue. It’s about pain, and dealing with it for a long time. And it’s about resolve.” –John L. Parker, Jr.

Why I run: I’ve been fortunate to experience life lessons, meet extraordinary people, and explore wondrous places that have inspired me to run.  Likewise, I have the fortune of learning many life lessons, meeting extraordinary people, and exploring new worlds while on the run.  With these in mind & heart, I lace up my shoes every morning to prove the human spirit is indomitable.

Where to find me when I’m not running: studying the intricacies of the immune system in my lab at USC; on my bed daydreaming about tortoises; at the Disney Store adopting more Tsum Tsums
