Your guilty pleasure: I have a big soft spot for sweets of almost any kind.
Favorite part of Hanover outside of class: Hanging out with all of my friends here on campus and going to practice.
Favorite quote: We run, not because we think it is doing us good, but because we enjoy it and we cannot help ourselves... The more restricted our society and work become, the more necessary it will be to find some outlet for this craving of freedom. No one can say, "You must not run faster than this, or jump higher than that. The human spirit is indomitable". - Sir Roger Banister (first man to run a sub 4:00 mile)
Road trip stories: My old high school team drove to the state XC meet to support one of our girls team members competing. We all wore the most random costumes we could find. We walked around the meet dancing to the music we brought with us in the boombox. There is nothing quite like seeing a guy in a penguin costume break-dancing at the state meet.
Who do you pattern your game after: I pattern the way I run after my high school coach. He always told me to get out hard, and if anyone wants to beat you make them hurt like they have never hurt before to do it.
