Cody

Favorite place to run: North Cascades National Park.

Current favorite shoe: Altra Lone Peak trail shoe.

I run because... It gives me the chance be in nature and explore.



Jo the Shop Dog

Favorite place to run: Anywhere and everywhere. Extra points if it's an off-leash park with water and a tennis ball. 
Favorite post-run snack: 2 scoops Avoderm Senior from Mud Bay or any treats Linda from FedEx brings me. 
Current favorite shoe: An old pair of Brooks Cascadia's I found in the garage tasted pretty good! 

Elizabeth

Favorite place to run: Soaring Eagle Park with girlfriends and dogs.

Favorite post-run snack: Coconut milk latte
I run because.... 
I'm a multi-tasker. It's the best way to exercise my dog, myself, get out on our beautiful trails and catch up with my girlfriends, all at the same time!

Jody

Current favorite shoe: If I'm out pounding the pavement I choose my Asics Kayanos. They have great support for my pronating feet and nice cushioning for my joints. 
I run because… it's how I honor my body and mind. I always feel better when I do. I have never regretted going for a run. 
If I wasn't a runner I would… be more of an avid hiker.    


Mark

Best things about running: Running has led to many great friendships, it allows me to eat and drink more than I really should, and I'd really miss the endorphin highs without it.
If I wasn't a runner I would... play more golf, and be more uptight!
What race are you looking forward to? Since turning 50 I've done one ultra-marathon, one Ironman and a couple marathons (including Boston). I'll be looking for an epic way to ring in the 60s in a couple years. Suggestions are welcome ;)


Pia

The best thing about running: The relationships that come from it -- my closest friends are from my high school and college cross country teams. The running community is also one of a kind and is incredibly fun to be a part of. 
Favorite place to run is:On the trails in the Redmond Watershed Preserve. There are so many trails and they are all well maintained which make for great runs!
I run because... it gives me a sense of freedom - when I'm out running, it's like my life is on pause and I don't have to worry about anything. I can just enjoy the scenery and enjoy the sense of accomplishment when I'm done. 


Sam

​My favorite place to run: the amazing trails behind the Issaquah High School.

Favorite post-run snack: a nice smoothie with some of my teammates. 

The best thing about running... is telling your non-running friends how far you ran and watching their jaw drop in awe.

Current favorite shoe: Brooks Glycerin. I love this shoe because of the soft cushion and spacious toe box. 
Favorite place to run: the track, where I can run sprints or longer distances.
Favorite running movie: Forest Gump
