I was lucky enough to meet Elizabeth in Case Prep this past fall. Immediately we began talking about running, as I was training for my first marathon and she was already a marathoner. She was an encouraging "guru" to me, and I'm proud to have recently completed a 20-mile relay with her as part of a 2-person team we named Destiny's Other Children. Anyone who needs some inspiration to keep physical health on the radar during law school, when it often falls off the radar, would be wise to get to know Elizabeth. I look forward to cheering her on at one of her marathons as she runs 50 for Billy.
