What is your background in running and what brought you to Varsity Sports?

I ran for Catholic High BR and have really been a life-time runner. Several of my high school friends worked at VSBR while in college, so I wanted the same opportunity. I have been at VSBR for a year now.

Favorite running routes in Louisiana?

Nothing beats the LSU Lakes for me

Favorite nationally? 

My favorite race nationally is the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington D.C. because it runs around the nation’s capital and all the beautiful monuments and landmarks.

Favorite running shoe of all times? Why?

The Mizuno Precision was my first long distance racing shoe, and it was very comfortable, light-weight, and reliable. Sad to see it go, but excited about its replacement- The Sayonara.

Best song to run to?

Levels by Avicii -probably the best pump-up song ever.


Random something no one knows about you?

I probably know all of the lyrics to any song you can think of.

Running Stuff:

State champions in High-School Cross Country at Catholic High.

First place team for the Corporate Cup 5K.

Qualified for the Boston Marathon with a 3:01 time at the Louisiana Marathon.
