Interview with Hilary Matheson – I know many new runners these days want to jump right in and run a hundred miler, but I also see a lot of new runners burning themselves out by signing up for every race they can get their hands on, instead of focusing on building a solid base first.
Trail running is the answer. Who cares what the question is?!
Interview with Meg Lewis-Schneider – My approach to training is “train don’t strain”. Listen to your body and don’t get greedy and take more than it’s willing to give. I do this by balancing hard workouts with quality, recovery/easy runs.
Interview with Adell Bridges – “I always like to remember that ‘nothing is permanent’. So, you can apply this when you’re in a pleasant situation, remembering to take it in and be grateful for it, because it won’t be around forever. Or when you’re in a challenging situation, to remember that this too shall pass!”
Interview with Shaylee Hurst – I wanted to know how to react when I came across all types of animals and wildlife, as well as basic first aid. Also, make sure you’re diligent about protecting your skin with SPF while you’re exploring!
Interview with Anna Frost – There are so many wonderful role models of strong, happy, successful women lining up and dominating at all of the major events. They last more than a few races, we see them consistently perform at a high level because they have healthy eating habits.
Interview with Hailey Van Dyk – There is something about the challenge of getting up each day and forcing yourself to run through the accumulated soreness. I also really love getting to go to sleep each night so that you don’t miss any of the sights by running through the night.
Interview with Dani Moreno – To secure a place on Team USA, I basically just had to have a great racing resume, which meant I had to race well consistently! It took a lot of work over the last year and I felt honored to be selected to the team still being very new to the sport.
Interview with Peter Billard – I intend to be still running long after most others have retired to the couch. Doing good so far!
Interview with Anna Mae Flynn – Don’t be too competitive with anyone or yourself. Always have a good time, and when it is time to work hard your body will know. I don’t really focus on the stats, but more about what I want to do that day.
Interview with Hollie Holden – My ideal race is running anywhere new, I love traveling & exploring the world – if I can do it using just my own 2 feet, even better!
