Person who pushes you or makes you better: My dad definitely pushes me to do my best. He knows how I race and how I practice and knows when I'm not trying my hardest. Even though I sometimes get annoyed when he points that out, it makes me work harder ultimately.
Other athletes in your family: Dad ran cross country and track for West Lafayette High School. Younger brother runs cross country and plays lacrosse at Carmel High School.
Special sports accomplishments: 7-time varsity letter winner in high school (4 cross country, 3 track), All-Sectional senior year in cross country, ran in the state meet for track in 2013 in the 4x800 meter relay, member of state championship cross country team, All-Conference HCAC 2013
Who is your role model: My role model is an old teammate of mine named Alex. When I first started running, she really encouraged me to work hard and persevere through hardships of running. She's now a senior running at Miami of Ohio.
Favorite quote: Oh, there are so many with running. One of my favorites is from a Gatorade commercial and it states, "You can throw in the towel, or you can use it to wipe the sweat off your face!"
