Running Love (Why do you love it? When did you fall in love with it? What do you love about it?)  Running to me has different purposes. An easy recovery session allows me to wind down at the end of the day, or to enjoy the morning peacefulness. A hard interval run allows me to see what I’m made of and push my limits. A long run in the mountains allows me to let my mind wander while reconnecting my body with nature. While I do enjoy the routine and safety of training on known trails & roads at home, I enjoy the novelty and the adventure that comes with running in new places.

Spirit Animal: I love the Ocean, swimming, and water sports, so maybe a “honu” (Hawaiian sea turtle).

What is your coveted superpower? The ability to remain calm under stress.

In 3 words, how would your closest friends describe you? Chill, outgoing, last-minute.

Words of wisdom for new runners? Don’t get caught up in all the hype. In its purest form, running is the simplest of sports. Just put your running shoes on and go!

What does representing On mean to you? I’ve been intrigued by the design ever since Olivier Bernhard launched the line, so I’m excited to give my own personal contribution in spreading the good word about On!

Favorite distance to run? From my triathlon perspective I do love running the 10K right off the bike, as it’s just a flat-out effort.
