National Running Day Interview! 

1. Why do you run?
I run to burn off the bitchy. I run to get sweaty. I run to dig deep and find my FABulous. I run to have coffee or see my friends. I run for laughs and for the amazing scenery. I run for clarity. 

2. How do you plan to celebrate National Running Day?
I just had a big weekend of running...but I will be off and running tomorrow night. I plan on 10k or so!

3. How many miles have you run so far this year?
oh boy.... over 500km

4. What big events do you have on the race calendar so far this year?
I have run RnR Arizona, Rocky Mountain Soap Women's Run (halfmara and 10k), Calgary Marathon (halfmara and 5k). I have 5Peaks Trail Run Series (May-Sept) and several Trail runs as well. I am excited for RnR Vancouver and Vegas in October and November as well!

5. Before I leave for a run you must have
...some water, EnergyBits and my watch. If I am alone, then my iPod. Otherwise I do not run with music.

6. Do you have one favorite app to track your runs?
I currently use the Nike app.

7. Who is your favorite running partner?
I often run alone. But I have a few pals I do love to run with. My friend Michael is always game for trails, Susan is down for runch, Cori is my partner in coffee crime, Sue is someone who keeps me on my paces. And my bestie Tara and I often run same races together. But she is waaay faster than me.

9. If you had to give someone one piece of advice about running what would it be?
Enjoy the miles. Be Present. Take it one mile at a time. And, never ever get caught up in comparing your run (or progress) with anyone else's journey. It is something that is all yours!

10.  Describe your relationship with running in one word:
(mostly love)


  1. Look at all those races you've done this year! Holy moley! Great job!

  2. All the running! All the races! All the fun! What are we doing next?
