What is your day job?

By day, I own and operate a small CPA practice in Scottsdale, Arizona focusing on individual and business taxes.

When and why did you start running?

I started running last October when a friend was visiting me from out of town and wanted to run a 5K when she got to Arizona.  I started training for my first 5K last October and have continued with my running since then.

Why do you love running?

I love running because its an “easy” activity to do. You don't need to plan that hard to go for a run in the morning or later in the day. You can just lace up your running shoes and head out for a quick run.

What is your favorite brunch entree?

My favorite brunch entree is French toast.

What is your favorite brunch drink?

I love a fresh mimosa. OHSO in Phoenix has the best one!

What is your favorite running gear?

My favorite running gear has to be my iPhone. I love it because I can listen to music while I run and keep track of my run using the map my fitness app. The app keeps me motivated and on track.

What is your favorite distance to run?

My favorite distance to run is a 5K.  

What are your running goals?

My next running goal would be to sign up and run a 10K.  I know of a few races coming to Phoenix that have a 10K route.  With bRUNch running I can increase my distance from a 5K to a 10K since we have both routes available.
