I have been a runner since middle school and am now in graduate school. I typically cover anywhere from 20-40 miles per week on roads, trails, and occasionally the treadmill. I have competed in several races both local and collegiately, but I've never raced a distance longer than 10k. However, I'm currently training for the 2018 Philadelphia Marathon.
