Each month, we honor a Running Lush as our Lush of the Month. Join us in honoring Lush Aaron from Oakland, CA as our September 2019 Lush of the Month.
What is your favorite race distance and why?
I really love the marathon distance because it's a journey that takes months of preparation, so you make a lot of great memories even before you get to the start line!
Do you have any running superstitions or rituals?
Well I'm pretty consistent about a sorta cheesy and bordering on campy series of leg swings and stretches before and after each run, but it's also my secret to avoid soreness and injury!
What is your favorite race and why?
Hard to pick a favorite but one standout is the Santa Barbara wine country half marathon. It's not actually in SB but ends in Solving with an afternoon wine festival in the town square, a lush's dream!! 🍷🍷
What is your perfect dream race?
Coming to the start line with friends and wishing them luck, a tough and scenic route, and a fun post race festival with beer or wine...all in time to head out for brunch afterward!
What do you like to do when you're not running?
Think about running, plan a run, talk about running, happy hour.
What's your favorite post-race drink?
Most races are actually just an excuse to have a beer before 11am!
