Athletic Background

Athletics has been an anchor throughout my life. I've danced, ran track, played football, boxed, completed a half marathon and competed on the sprint obstacle race on ESPN. While I've enjoyed all those various sports, sprinting has always been my first love. I started at age six and ran at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I've won many big races and lost many. There were tears of happiness and tears of disappointment. And, it's all been worth it.

Favorite Music To Train to

Hip Hop (old and new), EDM, Reggae and anything Marion Hill.
