Why I Choose to Run for 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 to Do Besides Running: Coffee, scuba diving, low frequency Pacific climate variability, traveling, surfing, the ocean, hiking, old school Bill Murray movies.
