5 Fast Questions
- What’s your favorite cereal? My favorite breakfast cereal is and always will be Frosted Flakes. My brother and I used to down a box after practice in high school.
- What makes a good running partner? A good running partner is someone who balances out your weaknesses with their strengths and vice versa so you can help each other get the best out of yourselves.
- What’s your favorite post run beverage? Ginger Ale…something about the bubbles.
- Do you have any connections to Raleigh or North Carolina? My step sisters live in Raleigh! One of them is actually getting married the day after the race and I’m a bridesmaid!
