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.
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 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.
The results of my VITL DNA test have certainly given me some food for thought. I'm considering what changes I can make in my diet to make sure I am getting enough of the right nutrients, as well as rethinking my training approach to tap into that body fat as an endurance energy source.
