Tell us 3 interesting nuggets about yourself
  1. I was born on Friday the 13th.
  2. Planning to complete a 100 mile race in 2019.
  3. I am an Arizona native

Why do you run?
I run for a lot of different reasons.... a few reasons are: I used to play soccer my whole life and took a little break from it and that is when I tried a trail race and got hooked. Awesome stress reliever and helps clear my mind. I am very competitive even if it’s against myself to see how far I can push myself and body too.

What is your most memorable race?
My most memorable race so far was McDowell Mtn Frenzy 50 miler. The wave of emotions throughout the race was crazy!! But completely it was a whole new level and knew I wasn’t done pushing my limits farther.

What is your advice to someone just starting?
Advise for someone just starting is to come out and join Cadence and San Tan Trail Runner’s on a group run and you will be hooked! The friends/family you will gain from it and the comradery you will see out there is amazing!!
