RUN! PUNK RUN!

"It’s a daily stride towards righting the wrongs and speaking up for people who don't have a voice. It's taking a point of view and taking a stance on something. I really pride myself because that’s the kind of work that I do in a sense. I'm not afraid to put my foot down. Here's where I stand. It’s easy for one to do that when you’re around the same five people and in a vacuum. But it's a lot harder to do on the social media platforms in front of people who don't know you. I think activism is taking your stance and something that I really hold close to my heart."

"Running to me has always been about representation at the beginning. Because I'm a 4th generation runner, it was a way to connect with my family and surroundings. Overtime, it grew into really focusing on my surroundings, connecting with the trails, connecting with nature, disconnecting from work or school or whatever it is that's happening in my day to day...to reconnect back with myself in the land. But now my running is no longer about me or for me."

"There is a kindred feeling, running with somebody, breathing with somebody, channeling that type of energy. You can feel it. For me, when I run with people, I’m never really the type to talk. I’m running on that energy. I want to feel you. I want to understand that when we’re in this moment, we’re connected. We’re putting in this work and we’re dedicated to what we’re doing within this moment. Synced minds."
