How did you start in your sport? When I was 13 years old running around the lake in my hometown, Big Bear Lake, CA
What does a typical training day look like? I train every morning and then do gym work in the afternoon. I typically run between 8-25 miles a day. Running is a lifestyle so all parts of my day are runner-friendly clean living.
What keeps you passionate about your sport? I love the body that God created and I love to see the potential it holds. I still believe I am far from realizing my potential for the marathon but I intend to find out.
What made you realize you had made it? I think when I ran under an hour for the half marathon I realized I had found my niche. It took years to figure out where my true potential was.
