  1. Growing up, I used to regularly race-walk with my Mom as cross training
  2. I played violin in middle school and cried during every lesson because I couldn’t handle constructive criticism
  3. My pre-race music preference is usually more mellow than pump-up… one of my favorite pre-warm up songs is “Oceans” by Hillsong
  4. I have 5 nieces and nephews named Chaylee, River, Ruby, Conrad, and Cora.
  5. I don’t think I’ve gone a single day without eating peanut butter … in many years.
