What event are you running with Team for Kids?
I am running in the 2016 United Airlines NYC Half with Team for Kids!
What is your favorite place to run and why?
Anywhere with a good view! Right now I am living in Philadelphia, and I love running along the Schuylkill River because you get to run along the river while passing the art museum and other city landmarks.
If you run with music, what are your favorite artists or songs to listen to?
I’m originally from Detroit, so to stick with Eminem I would have say Lose Yourself always gives me a good push when I run.
What is your favorite post-run meal?
I usually run in the morning, so a good omelett or bowl of oatmeal always does it for me.
When did your relationship with running begin and why?
I began running when I started college out of convenience at the gym but came to love it which led me to venture into running outside the gym.
Do you have any pre-race rituals or superstitions, if so, please explain?
No rituals necessarily, but an early night in bed the night before a race is always necessary for me!
Why did you choose to run this event?
Whenever I come to New York from Philly I love running through Central Park, and the race’s path is therefore very appealing to me. Once I saw the opportunity to run the race with TFK I knew it was something I should sign up for.
Tell us a little more about yourself
I am 22 years old. I recently graduated from Washington University in St. Louis and am now at University of Pennsylvania for a pre-medical post-bacc program. I am an active-junkie from running, biking, skiing, snowboarding and yoga I love to be active. I like to spend as much time as possible in the outdoors, but when I am indoors a good movie is my go-to.
What excites you most about running your event with Team for Kids?
For me, exercise and running in particular is what keeps me sane between the hard classes and never ending tests I have. To be able to provide that outlet for other kids is what excites me most about running with Team for Kids.
