Favorite quote that inspires me“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle: when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.

I like to think this when I’m up running at 5:45am.

Why I run:

  1. The joy of running
  2. The friendship and camaraderie of teammates and fellow runners
  3. To break and set new limits for myself
  4. The stress relief of a good run!

Where to find me when I’m not running: Volunteering for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
