How's your training so far this year?

Training is tough, but it's going well. I'm working extremely hard and its injury free so I'm happy about that. I have alove/hate relationship with training because I love the feeling of getting better and working for my goals, but I hate how I'm laid out after almost every practice. However, it's a necessary step I'm wiling to take to be great.

What are you looking forward to the most about Seattle and competing in Brooks PR?

I'm looking most forward to the competition the most. I want to finally be able to test myself again and see if I can perform at my best under pressure.

What are your goals for this meet and the rest of the season?

My only goal for the now and the rest of my Track and Field career is to work my absolute hardest and see what happens.

What types of music do you listen to before races?

I don't usually listen to music before my races because I'm self motivated for the most part so I don't have to listen to something to motivate me. Plus I don't want to miss the call for my race because my headphones are on. If I am listening to music its probably Kanye West, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy etc.

If you were stranded on an island with three things what would they be?

If I was stranded on an island I would bring a mtorboat with a gps installed, lots of Gasoline, and a cooler with lots non-perishable food and water inside.

Do you have a favorite food.

I like all kinds but I never get tired of Whataburger. Only people from Texas would understand.

What are some things unrunning related people might not know about you?

People might not know that I am a fan of Quentin Tarintino movies.
