Proudest accomplishment:  Coming back from a stress fracture to race the Big 12 XC Championships my 5th year of college.  I got a stress fracture in mid-September and cross trained for 6 weeks straight.  My third run on solid ground was the conference championships and I finished in 15th place.  

Goals for 2018:  I’m a bit ahead of schedule on my marathon goals and have the “A” standard for the Trials so I want to spend the spring lowering my PRs in the shorter distances and hopefully get back on the track.  I’m not ruling a 2018 marathon out of the question by any means especially since the USATF Marathon Champs are back at CIM in December!  

Favorite rabbit gear and why: TBD :)
