Why PRT? Speedy, fun, motivated teammates!  Despite grad school’s considerable presence in my life, PRT can still reignite my love of running competitively.  The amazing girls of PRT can make bleary, pre-dawn track repeats a highlight of the week and offer such a network of support that I’m stoked to race with them on the weekends.  Also, we get to participate in an incredible fall cross country season.

What I like besides running? Coffee, scuba diving, low frequency Pacific climate variability, traveling, surfing, the ocean, hiking, old school Bill Murray movies.
