Places Ive called home and why I like where I am now:
Manitou Springs, CO
Everywhere I've lived has been easy on the eyes but Manitou has mountains and trails that go up them.
When I started running and what got me started:
I first wanted to be a runner when I would race kids across the school fields in grade school, and I can still remember running the mile in 2nd grade. But most important was joining my middle school's track team in 2004. I was hooked.
What does running mean to me:
I love that running can be whatever you want it to be at any moment. I've used it to relax, to compete, to see new places, and even to get to exams on time.
Favorite running trail and why:
The many trails hidden in the Mississippi River bluffs in Minneapolis. They're where I transformed from a road runner to a trail runner.
Best running experience:
Whenever a storm starts blowing in and I feel like I'm racing it home. The thunder catching up gives me chills every time.
Worst running experience:
2014 Twin Cities Marathon. It was my first marathon and my plan was to coast to the halfway mark at ~8 min/mile before picking up the pace from there. Instead full body cramping set in at mile 14 and I had to hobble my way to a disappointing finish. I've never experienced anything like it, before or since.
