What is your favorite race distance and why?
I have a love hate relationship with the 5k.
Do you have any running superstitions or rituals?
At some point I figured wearing a hat would help me focus on my run. Now I don't run without a hat.
What is your favorite race and why?
Anything that triggers multiple medals for completing a challenge. Also the Santa Rosa Marathon 5k.
What is your perfect dream race?
Can someone put on a trail run that somehow also crosses the Golden Gate Bridge? I would love that.
Do you have an embarrassing race moment?
I was VERY late to the last 415 Across the Bay race. Finding parking was impossible so I didn't arrive to Aquatic Park for the start. I approached from that funny path up in Fort Mason a good 5 minutes after the gun. I waved "hi" to the race promoters and kept running.
What's your most proud running moment?
My two kids like competing in races with me but especially my daughter. She and I have had some great races together.
What do you like to do when you're not running?
When I'm not running I'm stitching and moming.
What's your favorite post-race drink?
