My rituals before running would be oatmeal, coffee, poop and go!
What is your favorite race and why?
My favorite races, are not in this order would be, The Golden Gate half, Tahoe Trifecta, and Trinidad to Clam beach. I have to say Nike Women's Half is one even though it is no longer. Views, Views and Views, I run to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding areas, and cool temps.
