Hometown: Holland, Michigan

I Like To Run: It gets me outside, it pushes me to try new things and test my limits, it fosters an amazing community and it reminds me that even in my weakest moments, I am strong!

Running Accomplishments: 1 50k, 2 marathons, 1:52 half marathon PR

My Favorite Run: A clear, calm morning just as the sun is coming up, when my only objective is to enjoy the day and the distance!

When I’m Not Running I Like To: Read, write, lift, bake/cook, listen to podcasts, adventure!

Favorite Quote: It changes, but currently, “sometimes the fear doesn’t go away, so you have to do it afraid” or “success isn’t bought, it’s rented. And rent is due every day.”
