How long have you lived in the area?  7 months

What are three words your friends would use to describe you?  Tall, dedicated, compassionate

Why do you run?  I go crazy if I can’t let out all my extra energy. I also really like to challenge myself and running is great to push myself while only competing with myself.

Why did you decide to join the Station Pub Run?  Rebecca Rubenstein told me to join and I fell in love with the group!

What is your favorite thing about the Station Pub Run?  I really like the people! Having a consistent group of people that I see every Tuesday really helps motivate me to keep running! It’s also a really great break from being a student.

Describe the most recent (appropriate 🙂 ) photo you took with your phone:  I went to a concert and I took a picture of the band playing on stage! It was the Mowgli’s.

What is the best piece of advice you ever received, and who gave it to you?  If you were able to do everything from the very beginning, nothing would be fun or rewarding! – Kelly Olsen in regard to me being bad at rock climbing.

If you could have any talent or skill in the entire world, without needing to practice and money was no limitation, what would it be?  I would be fluent in every language, communication is so important and being able to communicate with anyone would be really awesome!

Tell us something about yourself that not many people know:  Most of my family didn’t recognize me with my beard. I grew it when I moved down to Chapel Hill and my extended family didn’t recognize me. They thought my family had picked up a drifter on the way…

What is something you have done recently, or are about to do, that you are proud of?  This was around a year and a half ago, but I ran my first half marathon in 1:31:55!

Anything else you’d like to share with us?!  I have taken up rock climbing recently, and I have been repping the pub run at the gym! I think I convinced at least one person to come join us soon!
