Personal: Major is Pre-Nursing…Daughter of Bill and Janet Smith…Born March 9…Favorite Athlete is Tom Brady…Chose GC because both of her brothers went here and it was a familiar place for her, she knew it was a great school and environment to be apart of…Biggest sports thrill is how you feel after a race or workout knowing that you gave it your all and accomplished things you didn’t think were possible…Pre-game routine is to visualize what the race is going to be like as far as the pain, course, competition and other details. Picturing it realistically while still doing really well at the same time…biggest fear is being disappointed by her performance and feeling like she’s not running as fast as she should be…Favorite song is anything by Maroon 5, movie is What Happens in Vegas, and TV show is The Nanny…Lives by the motto: “Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.”- C.S. Lewis
