Biggest accomplishment of your career: I don’t really think of it as an accomplishment, but more of a highlight: it was running the NYC Half.  Just being able to run and have fun is a big accomplishment for me.

What parts of your training are key to your success?  I really need to have a plan for me to be successful.  I pick a race, plan out my training, and do it.  I wish I were someone who could just go out and run for miles just to do it, but I’m a planner,

What is the biggest challenge you face in your sport, and what do you do to overcome it? Living in South Florida, I really struggle with the heat & hydrating properly. Even though I’m a native, it still sneaks up on me and can wreak havoc on my body.

What is your favorite Zensah product and why? I love my Compression Leg Sleeves!! I wear them for racing & recovery.

 How long have you been using Zensah? I got my first pair of leg sleeves about a year & a half ago.

If you could be great at any other sport besides your current one, what would it be? I am really getting into paddle board racing.  I absolutely love it, and being on the water is a bonus.  I have been splitting my time training between the two, and each are effective cross training for the other!

What’s your favorite thing to eat after a tough workout? Spicy Bloody Mary after a race-every time!

Who/what inspires you? I am so inspired by the women of this county who put their lives on the line to protect us: our Armed Services, Police and Firefighters.  These women are a special breed of awesome, and are truly my #sisterheros

How does Zensah help you perform without limits?  I think Zensah sleeves help give me a competitive edge by allowing me to run a little further and a little harder without the extra fatigue.
