  • Self-description in 10 words or less: "determined, hard-working, driven, hot-headed, friendly, hungry”
  • My favorite aspect of being an athlete is: "working hard in order to better myself and my team”
  • If you could spend one day with a famous person from any time period, who would it be and why? “Galen Rupp, because I would enjoy hearing the kinds of things he has done and will do, as well as get advice because we have both experienced some of the same difficulties in running”
  • People might be surprised to know this about me… “I didn’t always like running”
  • It’s the year 2030 and I am doing this… “hopefully, I’m coaching a college track and field team”
