I enjoy track and long distance running. Recently, I placed 2nd in the Avalon 50k on Catalina Island in January after racing my first marathon at CIM in December. I also did a half Ironman triathlon in Tempe in October! These endurance adventures have been experimental forays after a decade of competing on the track. I ran for the MIT Varsity track team in college as well as the Caltech team as a graduate student. I am a 3x Division III All-American in the 800m/mile/distance medley relay. I have a mile PR of 4:57, 800m PR of 2:08, and 1500m of 4:27. (tfrrs)
I also enjoy backpacking, though lately it's taken a backseat to trail running. My favorite backpacking experience was five days spent in the Wind River range of Wyoming, but I've also explored Banff, the Sawtooths in Idaho, the Adirondacks, and the Grand Canyon.
