As a runner and coach of runners:My passion for running began when I raced my first mile on a dirt track in my 7th-grade gym class. I went on to run competitively at Wayzata High School, where I won the Minnesota state cross-country championship in my senior year, at Princeton University and for the New Balance Boston racing club. I have also coached runners at every level and age, and I am constantly inspired by working with many amazing people. Learn more.
