Tess Williams started running in middle school. "My mom didn't want me to run alone so I'd run six miles around my block everyday. My neighbors called me the energizer bunny." Tess likes goats, long bike rides, and farmers' markets like the one at home in Davis where she gets her spinach bolani fix. She enjoys running along the local Putah Creek at sunset and then cooking a delicious dinner. Tardy Tess's favorite band is the Fleet Foxes. Her 5k P.R. is 18:28 and her mile P.R. is 5:29. Her goals are to feel good, compete well and feel accomplished after her races. "And go on long warm-ups."
