Hawk Hill Friday Morning
Honorary Dog Lush Basha on Hawk Hill
What is your favorite race distance and why?
Currently my favorite race distance is the half marathon. It's just the right amount of challenge without your entire life succumbing to runs, food and sleep. Leaves lots of room for other fun activities like socializing with my Lushes.
Do you have any running superstitions or rituals?
I inevitably always recite some kind of mantra or goofy saying one of my old running buddies used to say before he passed away. He is the reason I started running longer distances and I only made it above 10k because he would entertain me on longer runs. I love my Gemini and Virgo running buddies because they have lots of stories and words to keep us entertained.
What is your favorite race and why?
My favorite race is the Bix 7 in my hometown of Davenport, IA. It's incredibly hilly and always hot and humid which makes it challenging but you forget about the elements because of the non-stop crowds and amazing music.
What is your perfect dream race?
Any race that ends with amazing food and wine!
What's your most proud running moment?
I had surgery in January and I think my most proud running moments are still happening. I have finally started to increase my distances above 5 miles and the fact that I had 5 holes in my abdomen at the beginning of the year and now I can run above 5 miles and feel really strong makes me really proud and also amazed at the power of the human body to heal.
What do you like to do when you're not running?
I enjoy hiking with my poodle, yoga, water sports and all things esoteric. I love doing card readings for new and old friends.
