Q: When did you start running? What inspired you to try cross country?
I started running in 6th grade. In 5th grade I played soccer and I was able to run a lot longer than others. When I was in PE I was the fastest long distance runner in my class so I decided to do VCJH cross country.
Q: What was your first race? Describe you experience.
The first race I can remember was really fun. It was hot out and the race was 2 miles long. I started out ok and throughout the race I kept passing people. At the end of the race I started sprinting and my shoe started to come off. I managed to keep it on and finish the race. At the end I found out that I placed first, I was so excited!
Q: What do you like about running cross country?
I like keeping fit and learning to push myself. I enjoy the atmosphere because for the four years I’ve been running the cross country team has aways been like one big family.
Q: What are some of your favorite and/or toughest workouts?
I actually enjoy the hard workouts, I like short intervals the most. Those are the hardest for me, so each time I have to push hard and break down mental barriers. I feel great at the end of the workouts where I challenge myself the most.
