I like to see how far I can push my mental and physical abilities – I like to be challenged.
What Is Your Favorite Race Memory?
Pacing 2011 GR Half marathon but coming back to find my boyfriend out on the marathon
course and cheering him on. I ran the last
200 yards with him to cross the finish line.
What's Your Most Embarrassing Race Memory?
Not so much in racing as in trail runs, where I've tripped over big roots and gone sprawling face first or when I tripped over my dog's long paws while running and
did a sommersault right across 52nd and Wilson.
