“I brought a flag just so that, when my teammates were running by, they could see that and know that we were out there supporting them.”

“Did you make the flag yourself?”

“Yes I did.”

“Out of what?”

“A few years ago I ran a 5K—my town has a little festival, and they had a 5K, so I turned [the race’s] shirt inside-out and made a flag out of it. The pole is a broomstick.”

“Who would you say is your biggest running inspiration?”

“My sister really got me to start running. She was the first person in our family to really start running, and everybody else in my family after her just kept running.”
