Fun Facts:
  • Qualified for the 2016 US Olympic Marathon Trials after running my first marathon. My first two marathons were both in California, but my third was the Boston Marathon on April 17, 2017
  • Came in 5th at Grandma's Half Marathon in Duluth, MN in June 2016
  • Won the Medtronic Twin Cities 10 Miler in Minneapolis / St. Paul, MN in October 2013
  • Was a 4-time All-American at Johns Hopkins
Goals for 2016/17:
Can it be a past goal? :) My big goal for 2016 was to run as well as I could at the Olympic Trials - trying to run as close to a 2:35 as I possibly could. Unfortunately, the heat got in the way of me doing that, but I put in a ton of training to try and reach that goal. Now that that's over with however, my next big goal has been to figure out how to juggle a full time job with lots of travel and training 80+ miles/week. Hoping to compete well in the Boston Marathon and see what comes after that!

Favorite rabbit gear and why:
I love, love, love all of it - the fabric with the bunnies hidden on it is the most comfortable thing ever. I also am in love with the new spring green color, new big rabbit logos, dual-fabric t-shirts, water bottles, visors - everything! :)
