I am a born-and-raised Ohio native with a passion for moving and healthy living. I have been running long distances for the past 8 years, but I have recently fallen in love with the marathon distance and plan to do many more. I am also currently a medical student and I adore learning about the body and how to help people who struggle with health issues (both mental and physical). Additionally, I am learning how to balance my busy life as a medical student with my passion for running and activity. I have found that dedicating time to running has helped me excel both inside and outside of the classroom by maintaining my mental health. Additionally, I love hiking and backpacking, cycling, and cooking delicious food!
