Favorite Workout: Haha, I hate workouts generally speaking, but if I have to pick one, it would be mile repeats at half marathon pace (we usually get up to 10 x 1-mile repeats during half and full marathon training, which is tough but really gets you fit!)
Why do you run: I love how running gives you an opportunity to push your mind and body beyond what you thought were your limits. It’s empowering to be able to make new goals and work to achieve them. I also love how I get to spend quality time with friends on runs. Some of the most meaningful conversations I have ever had were on long runs (including my first date with my now husband), and some of the best bonding with my friends has happened while pushing through a tough workout together.
Best part about being on the GO! Racing Team: I love how the GO! Racing team uses running as a tool to promote education, health, and wellness in the St. Louis community. It is so fun to be a part of a competitive team who works hard together and celebrates both team and individual accomplishments. On the other side, when someone is struggling with training, is injured, or is just dealing with life, we are always there to pick each other up!
