What is your favorite race distance and why?
I love the half. It's easy and fun and you can do one anywhere, anytime.
It really is the party race!
Do you have any running superstitions or rituals?
I wear lipstick for all my races, red.
What is your favorite race and why?
The best organization, beautiful, great swag and the post party is super fun.
Do you have an embarrassing race moment?
Yes! Rock-n-Roll San Jose a few years ago. I was wearing my favorite compression leggings, CR-X. They were the ONLY leggings I wore for races and they were basically falling apart, and well they did! At about mile 6 they tore in the butt! I took off my shirt, tucked it in the waist and had to run the race in my sports bra (I don't really do the sexy look like that), super embarrassing! Now I have several CR-X.
What's your most proud running moment?
I am super proud of all my 26.2 medals.
I've coached many people to cross their first 26.2 finish line as Pasadena Pacers team leader.
Go Team 13.
What do you like to do when you're not running?
I'm really into plants, I have several collector Anthurium and Hoya varieties.
I love to cook so I do that as much as I can.
And during the quarantine I began hiking and now I'm super addicted. Got my family really into it too. I take them all on hard 15-mile climbs all over Southern California.
What's your favorite post-race drink?
