Q. Your personal upcoming events or challenges

A. By the time you are reading this, my teammates (including SPIRE fam past and present- Jesse, Jenell, Rachel, Courtney) and I will have just run a Ragnar Trail race in Zion National Park. Hopefully I come back in one piece!  I also plan on doing the Riverwest 24 this summer and the North Face endurance challenge in the fall.

At some point I would like to run the Comrades ultra marathon in South Africa. I traveled to SA a few years back and it was the best experience of my life. I met a couple of people while I was there who had run the Comrades race and they said it is a really amazing experience, so it is something I definitely want to do!

Q. Unique something about you we do not know of

A. I love to cook and am very interested in the intersection of food and culture so I am working on a project that involves cooking a meal from every single country in alphabetical order (yes, all 196 countries!). I have a long travel bucket list and I have been fortunate enough to be able to cross 12 countries (and many awesome meals!) off of that list so far. I am hoping to squeeze in a few more in the next couple of years!
