All About Me...

Bucket List Races/Runs/Activities? I would like to complete the 6 World Major Marathons (I have 3 done - Boston, Chicago & New York)  and would like to complete an Ultra ...sometime soon.

Do you train according to any particular plan/method? I historically used Hal Higdons training plans.  This year I am working with a coach to incorporate speedwork, tempo, etc.

Road running or Trail running? BOTH - my heart is in the woods.  But I can't deny I love the speed of roads.

If you could meet any woman from history who would it be and why? When you say ‘from history’ not sure if you mean someone who is no longer with us..or just someone who has been influential.  That being said I would pick Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  The why:  she rose to such a powerful role but not without a lot of hard work and sacrifice - I would just love to chat and get her perspective on being a woman today and what advice she would give to young women now.

Favorite quote: “If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you."

Why Lily Trotters?

What do you like about Lily Trotters compression socks? The compression is spot on & they are cute. I do like the idea that I can wear them to work and play.
