What brought you to running club: My family members are all big runners, so naturally I've been running for as long as I can remember. I did cross country and track in high school, and trained for half marathons in between seasons. I joined running club to meet more people and have the ability to compete!

2. Ice cream is my favorite food, but I'm lactose intolerant. Needless to say, I'm a big fan of coconut milk halo top!!
