Tess Williams started running in junior high, during which her greatest accomplishment was winning the Yolo County League Championships, a race in which she ran like she'd only live once. Tess enjoys smooth flat sunset runs along Putah Creek, the levee, and Davis' many beautiful farm fields. Back home, Tess was known as T-Dawg, a member of a notorious running gang known as the "flock." Apparently the nickname suited Tess, as she has recently been compared to a pitbull due to her forgetful nature. Outside of running Tess enjoys long drives with her family. Tess' main goal this season is to never miss the van.
