What's the one thing you can't live without on a run?

I cannot live without water on my runs. I always carry it and panic if I don't have it. It always reminds me of our mission to run so that others can have water!

What's your most embarrassing running story?

When a toad jumped out in front of me on a nighttime run and I basically bulldozed the person next to me to jump away from it!

What was your first race ever and what was it like? 

The 2016 Chicago Marathon. It was the second best day of my life after getting married! It was such a fun day and being proud of my fundraising made those tough miles much sweeter.
