FUN RUNNING QUESTIONS

Why did you start running?
A transition in life and a relative passed away from being sick. Run for charity and just went from there in 2006.

Who inspires your running and why?
All of my fellow runners…their determination and support has been great. And when I see a person who just started running or those that are older just doing it…so motivational.

What’s the most beautiful place that you’ve run?
Green River Wyoming – small marathon, beautiful scenery and race at 8000 feet.

What is the thing you splurge on after a race?
Beer..and good food. My downfall, but the post parties and dinners are great ; )

Big races or small races? And why?
Small races between 1000 and 3000 runners. Just more of a shared, community feel.

What running moment are you most proud of?
My 50th marathon in Rehobeth Beach Delaware..a fellow runner had a beer in their hand waiting for me when they announced my name and the 50th marathon. From there I knew I could do the 50 states and start the quest for 100 marathons.

I asked Kerri if there’s anything else she would like the rest of the club to know and she had this to say:
I’ve run 50 marathons and 6 ultras to date and run about 600 to 700 race miles a year. 5 states to go to get my 50 states, finishing in July. Then on to ultras (favorite races) and going for 100 marathons.

What a go-getter, eh? Love that she just joined the club and is already volunteering to be a profile. Obviously, she is driven which you can see by her goals and what she’s accomplished so far. Whatever your goals are, go after them! And if you need a little push or encouragement, that’s what we are here for. :)

Good luck at Boston Kerri! I hope you have a lot of fun, savor your first run there…and Run It Fast!
