32, OB/GYN at MOGA

Last Race: The 2017 St. Jude Half Marathon. I stopped training when pregnant in 2018 and started running for fun.

Most Memorable Run: Beating Eddie George (retired TN Titans running back) in the Nashville Half Marathon in 2007 by 15 seconds. Although I never saw him during the race, my name was directly above his on the finishers list.  

I <3 Running: I love the competitive nature of racing against my own goals as well as other runners, but also the therapeutic nature of running alone and for fun. 

Must-Haves: On Cloudswift running shoes and Lululemon Pace Rival Crops

Obstacle Course: Recovering from an unexpected C-section. I ran throughout my pregnancy until the middle of the third trimester and hoped to return quickly after delivery. However, I had to restart very slowly and was much more deconditioned than anticipated.

Fitness Pet peeve: Slow walkers 

Bucket list: Half marathon in every state 

Best Eats: Hog & Hominy—can’t wait for it to come back!
