I don’t know ???
Fish that have been living forever even though I have never fed them!
Q: When did you start running? What inspired you to try cross country?
I started running in 6th grade. I was inspired to try cross country because I am not very coordinated but was always one of the fastest runners in my PE class.
Q: What was your first race? Describe your experience.
My first race was the practice meet in Santa Cruz. The race was way shorter than I thought it would be and it went by so quickly. However, I hated the end of it because two people from Santa Cruz blocked the path and I was confused about where the race ended. After, I ate a lot of watermelon but nowhere near as much as Shannon!
Q: What do you like about running cross country?
I like scaring people by telling them about how many miles we ran. I also like how accomplished I feel after a good workout.
Q: What are some of your favorite and/or toughest workouts?
My favorite workout is the 5 mile tempo at Alum Rock Park because it is mostly flat and has lots of shade. The toughest workout we do is hill repeats at Montgomery Hill because I’m not a big fan of hills and there is hardly any shade.
Q: Favorites: xc race? xc course? Track race distance? Track meet?
My favorite race and cross country course so far is the Santa Cruz course at UCSC.
