What event are you running with Team for Kids?
The Airbnb Brooklyn Half!

What excites you most about running your event with Team for Kids?
Everything! This is my first running race; I’m super excited and looking forward to it.

If you run with music, what are your favorite artists or songs to listen to?
I especially enjoy “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons during a long run.

What is your favorite post-run meal?
Almonds! I have them handy in my workout bag, so I can refuel quickly after my runs. Sometimes I like to stop by for a fresh fruit smoothie on my way home.

When did your relationship with running begin and why?
When I used to be on the lacrosse team in high school, I ran for strength and endurance during practice. And I stopped exercising all together in college. I want to feel strong and healthy again, so I signed up for the Airbnb Brooklyn Half to motivate myself to exercise. While training is tough, nothing feels more liberating than post-run.

Why did you choose to run this event with TFK?
I want kids to grow up active and enjoy sports the way I did when I was young. It’s the best way to stay healthy and grow up strong.
