MEMBER OF THE MONTH - OCTOBER
How did you hear about Pacifica Runners?
I saw the banner on the side of the building while driving along Highway 1. A quick google search led me to the website.
How long have you been a runner?
According to my parents I went from crawling to running, skipping walking altogether. Competitively, I've been running since 7th grade when I joined the JV track and field team.
How did you get into running?
My brother, sister and I played all the sports growing up and I was usually the fastest kid on the team. The summer going into high school I had a problem with my knee (Osgood Schlatters) so I transitioned from soccer to cross country. I was the 3rd fastest Freshman in the section and I've never looked back since.
Do you have a favorite race(s)?
The New York City Marathon is amazing. Running with so many different people from all over the world plus the crowd support is incredible for almost the entire 26.2 miles. I also love all the trail races the Bay Area has to offer.
What are your favorite running trails/routes?
I love all the dog friendly trails in Pacifica. You can usually find me out running with my 4 year old lab mix running partner Penny. If you think I'm in good shape you should see her run.
What are your future running goals?
What do you enjoy most about Pacifica Runners?
I love running with the group, especially the Wednesday night workouts on the track. It's so motivating! Especially on days when I'm tired and just not feeling like running. Everyone is so encouraging and positive. My new favorite quote during workouts is from Mor; "This is why we're here!".
Any other cool info about yourself?
I hiked the Pacific Crest Trail in 2013.
