What gets you out the door on tough days?
I think about my ultimate goal. The only way to get there is to put in the work — no excuses. Also, unboxing a new pair of shoes or gear definitely helps.
How did you start running?
It was a soccer survival tactic.
What makes your journey special?
I am the tortoise. My career path started much closer to the everyday runner. I have chipped away year after year and eventually reached the upper echelons of running through consistency, hard work, and patience.
