I played every sport growing up in Iowa, but wasn't good at any of them. Until I tried running my sophomore year of high school. Right away I found my talent. I went on to win seven individual state titles, set three all-time state records, got inducted to the high school hall of fame, earned a scholarship to the University of Wisconsin - Madison (Go BADGERS!), earned Big Ten honors, and 12 varsity letters, and am still racing today. I currently run professionally for Saucony and at age 31 I'm still loving the sport and setting PRs.
