Steepling History

As I warmed up for the morning steeplechase prelim, I thought back to the adventure I’ve been on in 2015: the 1000m repeats in Sedona, the long runs with my amazing training partners, the abandoned desserts, the emotional meetings with coach, the 3 A standards, the yoga, the total life commitment I’ve made for this dream….and I knew I was ready.


The U.S. made history by qualifying all six steeplers (men and women) into the World Championships final and I’m HONORED to be a part of it. Robert & Rita Gary, Chad Balyo, Furman Elite, New Balance, Total Sports, and all my incredible friends & family who cheered me on. Blessed, humbled, and fired up — ready to run my heart out in the final on Wednesday!
