Why/when did you start running? I love to be around people and have always enjoyed being outside. Running with the local high school sports team helped me fall in love with running. I spend a lot of time at the high school helping and watching the different sports and the coaches have always included me as much as possible.

What is your favorite aspect(s) of running? Running helps boost my confidence.

What excites you about being part of the RUNColumbus Race Series and Team? The excitement of being around people that have the same love/enjoyment as I do. As well as the encouragement I gain from others.
