Something People Don't Know About Me:I hurdled in high school because my older sister was a distance runner and I didn't want to race against her all the time. When I entered college at Fresno State I had wanted to try the steeplechase, but my coach used the steeple as a bit of a threat to all freshman. Since I was the only freshman that year, I was "stuck" running the steeple. Of course, I let my coach think that she had MADE me run it, when all along I had wanted to give it a try. So, I became a 4-time WAC champion because I was "forced" to do the steeple freshman year. I just thought that was kind of funny. =)
