Running accomplishments & more!

I first started running track as a freshman at Oconomowoc HS as a “backup plan” in case I didn’t make the baseball team. I ended up never even trying out for baseball and have loved running ever since. I ultimately ran XC and track collegiately at UW Oshkosh (2013-18) competing primarily in the middle-distance events (800 and 1500/mile). Now, I continue to train and run competitively on the track and the roads.
