PERSONAL: Born in Marietta, Ga. ... Daughter of Julie and Gary Lemco ... Her father played basketball at SUNY Binghamton ... Majoring in accounting ... Has written a children's book and made a short film ... Chose to attend Pepperdine because "when I started to realize how much Pepperdine could offer me in terms of my major, competitive running, climate, internship and study-abroad opportunities and the ability to study as a Regents' Scholar, I knew it was my dream school."

Lists her sports hero as Michael Jordan ... Favorites include Maria Sharapova (pro athlete), Jane Eyre (book), The Devil Wears Prada (movie), The Simpsons (TV show), Coldplay and Maroon 5 (musical artists), roasted vegetables and sweet potatoes (food) and volleyball and tennis (sports other than running) ... Favorite thing about running is "the fact that hard work in practice coupled with a mental plan in competition basically translates to automatic success."
