Favorite place you have raced? My favorite race is the Tejas Trails Tinajas race at Colorado Bend State Park, I just really love those trails, they’re hard and I always walk away with some sort of new scrape or bruise.

Favorite hobby? I’m a big napper, but also love going to restaurants or wine bars with friends, as long as I don’t have to drive I’m down for whatever!

Favorite restaurant in Austin? Beer Plant for brunch, Bouldin Creek for every other meal.

How many running shoes do you usually rotate around?Only 2 right now, the Altra Escalante and the ASICS NovaBlast, but I really want to like Hoka, I’ll get there!

Bio: I’ve been in Austin for about 16 years now, I moved here for work and have just found my spot.  I started running about 4 years ago, and I’ve always wanted to run a marathon and when I finally decided to go for it I just really loved it!  I love running trails and have aspirations of running an ultra.  My new found obsession has also helped me find a new passion and new career path! I’m currently a student at Texas State working on my Physical Therapy degree!
