Runner Profile: Meet Alison

Alison is a pretty rad chick. She's super smart, has a cool job, AND she's hardcore when it comes to fitness. (Can you say 5am Boot Camp??). We've run together downtown a couple times, and man, she can conquer the hills like a champ. ;)

1. What is your favorite stretch?
Pigeon or down dog

2. Do you have any pre-race rituals?

3. What motivates you to run?
Running feeds my competitive nature – and I love the runners high

4. How long have you been running?
14 years or so

5. Running shoe of choice?

6. Best advice received?
There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs.

7. What do you think about when running?
Nothing specific, but I try to stay in the moment and not think too much at all

8. What is something you cannot run without?
Aside from the basic running-ware? Nothing…I’m not very superstitious

9. What race distance is your favorite?
Don’t have a current favorite

10. Most outrageous running story you've heard or experienced?
My mom ran with a torn meniscus for about 4 months until it was correctly diagnosed. She had surgery and is still running (probably better than ever). Maybe not outrageous…but possibly crazy. It must run in the family. :)
