Favorite quote: Since I am from Oregon, I have to go with a Pre quote: "To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift." - Prefontaine
 
I also love, "That's the thing about running: your greatest runs are rarely measured by racing success. They are moments in time when running allows you to see how great your life is." - Kara Goucher

PRs:
- 50k Trail- 4:10- (Hagg Lake)
- 50 mile trail (Leona Divide)- 7:36
- 100 mile trail (Western States)- 19:26

Fun facts:
- Both my parents have (and still do) raced ultras. My dad out-kicked me and beat me in my first 50k.
 
- I was the youngest finisher in my first 100 miler (Western States) back in 2004. I had to run the last 30 miles with bags of ice duct taped to my knees and my pacer would tear them off at each aid station and re-tape on new bags. When he saw my parents at mile 93 he ran up to them and said he didn't think anything was permanently wrong.

Birthday: December 27, 1979

Favorite movie:  Favorite running movie would have to be "Without Limits." Growing up, I loved the original "Parent Trap" with Hailey Mills.

Proudest accomplishment:Completing the Ozarks Highlands Trail last year in a new FKT of 58 hours 46 min. The experience, with the people who helped me, tops any race memory or accomplishment. It was so much more than just going for a time.

Goal(s) for 2019: I REALLY want to make an attempt at the Superior Trail FKT (310 mi).

Favorite rabbit gear and why:  The super sleevie is the best winter running shirt, love the length and fit, and the utilicapreeze are my go-to capris because of the light weight fabric and pockets.
