If you could choose anyone to run with, who would it be and why? Sally McRae, Nike Pro Trail Running. I began ultra running because of her film Western Time by Billy Yang, was blessed to attend her Trail Running Camp in NC April 2017, and had the chance to run with her for 5 days. The most amazing, inspiring, gracious human on this earth!
Favorite post-run treat/meal/drink? Pizza and a Coke Zero
What do you do to overcome mental/physical challenges while running? I think about how grateful I am to have the strength to run. So many people are unable to run, and I remind myself of how blessed I am to have this strong running body.
What are your non-running hobbies? Anything outdoors, Hiking, Mountain Biking, Camping, Paddle Boarding.
If you could meet any woman from history who would it be and why? Tough One. Sacagawea, a true pioneer for females making their mark on the outdoors.
What do you like about Lily Trotters compression socks? I have always had a problem with tibial stress syndrome, and without good compression socks, I can find myself so injured that I can’t even stand to put a sock on. Compression socks have saved my running life. I love the badass strength behind the women of this brand. The awesome compression and cute styles are pretty darn amazing too!
