Meg is a senior at Mudd and a talented 400 hurdle runner. While cross country courses are ‘slightly’ longer and usually involve little ‘hurdling’, Meg enjoys the camaraderie of the cross-country team and is driven by “the desire to improve and PR” and sharing workouts with her teammates. Before races, she likes to close her eyes and imagine herself running well. She loves hilly runs and if she were able to pick any workout to do, it would be 1000 loops, but with “only half the normal number of reps”! While she runs, she is usually calculating how much of the run is left, or calculating the distance of the tangent to the next corner, as a true Mudder would do. To fuel all of the running and computer science work she does, Meg loves to eat Pierogies. Meg hopes to improve her times of 24:10.1 (6k) and 19:43 (5k) this season.
