ENDURrun: What is your runner profile? 

Vicki: I started running casually in 2005, ran my first race in the fall of 2006 (Oktoberfest Run 5K). I love trail running but do enjoy racing on roads.


How is your training going? 

So far so good… nit mixing things up TOO much this year.


How will your ENDURrun 2018 compare to previous years?

Time will tell. 🙂


What are your ENDURrun 2018 stories? 

After surprising myself in 2017, I am hoping to build on that and (fingers crossed) maybe even improve in 2018.


What are you most looking forward to about ENDURrun 2018?

Seeing all the returning runners and meeting the new ones.


What are the key pieces of advice to Rookies that you’ve learned over the years?

It’s a long week; take it one stage at a time, but don’t forget that you need to do it again tomorrow.  


For someone who has never been to ENDURrun week, what should they expect?

ENDURrun is race/event experience like no other: superior organization, amazing food, the best people around (the runners, the volunteers, the spectators… everyone).


What about ENDURrun keeps you coming back?

See my answer to the previous question.


What is the most important part of the ENDURrun identity that appeals to you?

The variation in terrain and distance from day to day: a test of the all-around runner.
