where is home: Born & raised in North Carolina, but I home to me is New York City.
first marathon: 2010 NYC, i learned a lot about myself that race-respect the distance and to dig deep, way deep when times look bleek.
since then I have run 7 marathons: 2 Bostons.2 nycs, vermont, greensboro and bermuda.
most memorable race: 2014 Boston Marathon, the city was electric, full of love and displayed amazing resilience.
Favorite race: NYC, hands down! Starting on the verrazzano bridge hearing frank sinatra playing in the background as you overlook brooklyn, bronx, and manhattan in the distance is amazing. nyc is the best urban playground for a runner.
morning or evening runs: evening, i'm a night owl.
favorite distance: 15k, the perfect distance for speed and endurance!
Favorite place to run: trails and a coastal view, basically most of san diego.
Favorite shoe: I only run in Saucony type a. it's a racing flat meant for 5ks but i wear them for long distances and training. Super light shoe that is perfect for my style and gait!
running icon: Ted Corbitt, the father of long distance running, founder of New York Road runners. If you don't know him then i suggest look him up!
Quirky running habit: I...i don't wear socks when i run. my shoes are so perfectly fitted to my feet that i don't want the extra layer.
Forefoot or heel striker: i run on my toes!
