5. When did you start running? Labor Day 2011
6. Why did you start running? MSU was offering C25K and my sister asked me to do it with her, so I did!
7. Why did you join Eat & Run MS? I’ve been watching John’s posts this past year and thought it was a great organization.
8. What is your favorite local place to run? Seeing as I live in the country between Columbus and Starkville, I dearly love my little country roads. There’s always an adventure waiting and I love it!
9. What is your favorite distance to run? I love running the 50 mile distance.
10 What is your favorite race to run? My favorite race, well there’s actually two. I dearly love the Coke 10k in Corinth, Mississippi. It’s a fabulous race and I run it every year. My other favorite race also happens to be a Mississippi race and that’s the MS50 Trail Run in Laurel. I’ve run this race three times. Both are very well run/organized events with amazing volunteers and support.
11. What is your next running goal? My next race is the Pistol 100k in March. This is a building block race leading to my big goal of completing a 100M race. Hopefully I can tackle that distance this fall? Depends on how a few things work out. Fingers crossed!
12. What is your goal mileage for 2019? Would you believe I don’t have one? My goal is to toe the line at my races healthy and well prepared. The mileage to do this is secondary.
