While the half and full marathon distance is my passion, my true forte comes in the form of a different type of running challenge – food: I won the NYC Pizza Run (a 5K that involves eating pizza several times, mid-run) in 2017, and came in second in 2018.
Having spent 8+ years in the customer service industry, I love running for the bond it fosters with the local community. Not only that, I think it is truly the best way to get to know a place – a neighborhood, a borough, or an entire city. I believe wholeheartedly in the mind-body connection, and in the idea that running can be a powerful tool to get to get to know yourself better, both mentally and physically, and I cannot imagine my life without the sport. I am always striving to improve, and hope to inspire the same in other runners, but at the same time, I try not to take myself too seriously (see: pizza run).
I am currently coaching with Team in Training as part of the Spring/Summer 2019 season, and with New York Road Runners as part of their Group Training sessions. I am also offering custom training calendars, as well as guided “fun” runs. Check out my Offerings page to see the many ways we can run together, or simply contact me to see how I may help!
