  • What Motivates You to Run/Walk? Coaching, competition, community and being a great role model for my daughter motivate me. 

  • What do you like the most about Team FTC? I'm going to have to do a Top 3 for this question. 1- The joy that comes with running. I can do the work on my own but the feeling of joy occurs when training with teammates. 2- Getting professional coaching. Coach Enoch has improved my form tremendously. 3- The culture of Team FTC. Great humans who truly care about each other. 

  • Words of Wisdom: Enjoy your body. Use it every way you can. Don't be afraid of it, or what other people think of it. It's the greatest instrument you'll ever own.
