6. Favorite Shoes: Luna Sandals. I haven’t wore shoes in almost two years.

my 9 to 5.
15. What is your crosstraining activity of choice: Biking. Currently road, want to get a
mountain bike though.
16. I felt most like a badass runner when: Probably most when it’s night, running trails with
my headlamp, barely seeing while running in the middle of the woods, something special
about it.
17. Piece of gear you can’t live without: Backwards Hat. Which is always a Dirtbag Runners
hat.
18. What is a quirky habit you have while running: I can’t keep a bottle in one hand, I
rotate every couple miles.

pacing Buffalo Marathon

Anything else you’d like the DBR community to know about you:
I registered for my first half marathon before ever running a single mile and was almost 300lbs! Over the next six months I lost 120lbs and started training for my first full marathon.
