I started running when I was about 10 years old. My mom ran ultra marathons, so I began by joining her on her shortest runs. Initially I ran because I enjoyed being in the forest and spending time with mom. As time went on, I started running farther with mom until I was doing all the running she was doing. At that point I decided to try my first 50K at age 14. After that experience I started running a bit more and soon was hooked on ultra marathons. Since then I continued to train more and improve, but I always aim to keep the sheer joy of running the top priority.

Hometown: Corvais, OR

Real Job:  Student


Social Media:   

Favorite Beer: Not a drinker.

Guilty Pleasure:Granola

Other Hobbies: Hiking, golf, music and reading.

Best thing about VFuel: VFuel has been essential to my race day fueling. I don’t get a crampy stomach late in a race using VFuel because of the use of dextrose instead of fructose.

Best recovery meal: I love sweet potatoes, but anything with a lot of calories.

Favorite trail running memory: One of my favorite trail running memories is running a loop in the Oregon Cascades by Pamela Lake with my mom and uncle. That loop was the most peaceful run I've ever done.
