"I grew up in a running, athletic household with my private coach, my dad, pushing me every day to reach my full potential. I believe that running, nutrition, and education helped me to achieve my goals and reach my success. This foundation started in my youth at home and then great coaches built upon this foundation. This is a sport that every one can participate in and that everyone can strive to be their very best while developing lifelong friendships along the way."
