What inspired you to run for NPF?

It was discovered in 2015 that I had a large cancerous tumor on my pancreas. I find myself so fortunate to have beaten cancer, and still have the ability to do all things. I couldn’t think of a more fitting organization to run for, especially for my very first full marathon!

What is your spirit animal?

I would like to believe its an Elephant. It is believed they symbolize luck, strength, and loyalty. However, the spirit animal quiz says I’m a Hummingbird… I guess I can take that, but they seem way more graceful then I could ever hope to be!

My biggest pet peeve?

People chewing with their mouth open, and “chomping” their gum!

Where is the most interesting place you’ve been?

Ireland, and it was amazing!

Favorite Race?

Any race with a friend.

Go-to meal before a race?

A banana with almond butter… sometimes oatmeal.

Life Mantra

“Just keep swimming”
