Tell us a little about yourself…

How long have you been running?
-I’ve been running since I was in the eighth grade, about 16 years ago.

Please list your favorite races and PR’s
-I’ve done several 5ks and my best time is 18:11.

What are your 2020 Racing plans and running goals?
-I am hoping to run a 5k in sub 18 mins and a weighted 800m in sub 2:38

Any “bucket list” races?
-I would love to do a sprint tri and an iron man

What is your average weekly mileage?
-20 miles right now, but building up to more.

What is your favorite workout?
-I enjoy a good 6-7 miler with increasing speeds. It’s tough, but feels really good after successfully hitting my times.

Favorite pre-race/post-race foods
-I keep strict eating habits and just eat a lot of meat and then load up on fruits.

What is the piece of running gear/food/drink that you cannot go without?
-I like to be very flexible, but I do love running in my Nike metcons and my cheap sunglasses.

What is your favorite running moment or running quote?
-I just remember my own personal accomplishment of hitting an 18:11.

Describe your running before HRL and after. How have you improved and which PR’s have dropped?
-Before HRL, I ran without direction and very inconsistently and saw little in the way of improvement. Now I feel like I have a set direction for working out and I’ve seen almost 4 min cut off my run time in addition to seeing my weightlifting recovery times improve.

Why does training with Hawaii Running Lab work for you?
-I pay for it and thus I am inclined to keep it. Additionally, I have met with Michael and he has helped me with my form. Lastly, I enjoy the schedule I have that keeps me on track and allows me ample recovery time.

Anything else that you would like to add?
-I have enjoyed HRL and hope to hit my running goals by the end of this year!
