What is your favorite race, and why
My favorite race is the Rocket City Marathon. There are a lot of participants and it draws a good crown making for a fun atmosphere. The course is challenging and running through the space and rocket center as well as the botanical gardens makes for great race day photos.
What is the hardest race you have ever run, and why OR what has been your toughest challenge in running, and why
The hardest race was my first marathon Rocket City 2015. I had gotten back into running seriously about a year before that but had never trained for a marathon. I definitely was not prepared and that day was unseasonably hot. I walked a lot the last few miles but finished. I joined the fleet feet marathon training program for my next marathon and had a much better performance.
What has been your most interesting race experience?
My most interesting race experience was very recent. I was warming up for the Mercedes Half Marathon in Birmingham and two dogs chases me for about half a mile.
