Happy Friday, everyone!!
Back at you!


Do you have a certain brand of sock you like to wear in the summer vs the winter?
No - but I just got my first pair of non-cotton socks and they are nice to run/bike in!

Do your feet sweat a lot?
I don't know where on my body the sweat comes from, but they need wringing out before they get brought in the house!

Would you rather run on a sun exposed path or a wooded path where the humidity gets contained?
I guess I would like to run on wooded paths if I had any nearby. A combination of both would be best.

Do you carry a water bottle or a camelback on your long runs when it is really hot?
Yes - there are zero fountains anywhere I run

Have you been running outside during this recent heat wave?
Yes, most days.

What color describes you best and why?
Deep blue - reminds me of the ocean!

What is your favorite pre-race fuel the night before?
Spaghetti with red sauce and a good crusty bread

What is a dream you have or something you would like to accomplish in your lifetime?
I would like to catch a 1,000 pound blue marlin and a bluefin tuna larger than me.

What’s your greatest fear?
Something happening to my son.

What would life be like if you could walk on walls?
my floors would be a lot cleaner?

If you had unlimited money for one week, how would you spend it?
Unlimited? I would get the US out of debt and make sure everyone had health care. I would give every school teacher a bonus for putting up with a bad few years. After that, I guess I would top out a college fund for my son, get my wife a nice house in the country with a big fenced in back yard with a pond and a few pet ducks, and get lifetime season tickets to Virginia Tech football (and prepay for a jet/pilot, etc to get me there and back).

Actually, I don't know what I would do - that is a tough question!!!


Who influenced you the most when you were a child?
The obvious answer is my parents. I remember my Grandfather taking me fishing when i was young - memories that I will treasure forever! My Mom and Dad are my heroes though...

[quote="Mrs. Schuey"]Happy Friday, everyone!!



Do you have a certain brand of sock you like to wear in the summer vs the winter? I always wear Wright Socks

Do your feet sweat a lot? Yes! As does the rest of me!

Would you rather run on a sun exposed path or a wooded path where the humidity gets contained? I do a lot of runs in the sun, and none on wooded paths, so it might be kind of nice to try that!

Do you carry a water bottle or a camelback on your long runs when it is really hot? No, I drop water bottles out or run through the golf course and drink from their jugs they have set out by the restrooms (I'm a member).

Have you been running outside during this recent heat wave? Yes, in week 9 of Int. 2 and I've done 16 and 17 as the longest so far in the heat wave.

What color describes you best and why? Pink. I like it. It's girly. My skin tone is kind of pink.

What is your favorite pre-race fuel the night before? Pasta and a salad.

What is a dream you have or something you would like to accomplish in your lifetime? I have everything I could ask for: great family, a grandson, great job, modest but nice enough house, so I guess I will stick with a running dream: I hope I can keep running until I'm old(er) and gray! I don't want to have any injuries or health problems stop me from running.

What’s your greatest fear? Losing a family member.

What would life be like if you could walk on walls? It might be easier to paint and clean spider webs and dust?

If you had unlimited money for one week, how would you spend it? I would move my sister into a handicap accessible house that I pay for and put money in an account so she could retire early, pay off my son-in-laws student loans, buy computers for my school district, pay to have the old ugly grain elevator torn down in our town, visit my sister-in-law in Seattle, and by then the week is up and I would donate the rest.

Who influenced you the most when you were a child? I think my sisters and brothers did. I idolized them, listened to their advice, and was best friends with them. When my oldest sister went to college I cried and cried, I was 5. I thought that every one had to go to college!

Do you have a certain brand of sock you like to wear in the summer vs the winter?



Nah, I wear lots of different brands and don't switch em up based on temps.

Do your feet sweat a lot?



EVERYTHING on me sweats a lot. I sweat a ton. Feet too. I can hear the squish squish squish sometimes when I run.

Would you rather run on a sun exposed path or a wooded path where the humidity gets contained?



Love to get out of the direct sunlight. That's the biggest killer to me and so any shade is money.

Do you carry a water bottle or a camelback on your long runs when it is really hot?



I don't. Probably should. But I just don't like wearing or carrying bottles.

Have you been running outside during this recent heat wave?



Most definitely.

What color describes you best and why?



Blue. I seem to wear a lot of blue. I open my closet and at least 1/2 to 2/3 of my work shirts have blue in them or are pretty much all blue. Don't know why. Guess I like blue!

What is your favorite pre-race fuel the night before?



I keep it simple with spagehitti and tomato sauce.

What is a dream you have or something you would like to accomplish in your lifetime?



I would like the lifestyle I have now but not have to work. Wow, that would be awesome.

What’s your greatest fear?



Always some version of something happening to the family.

What would life be like if you could walk on walls?



I'd still take the elevator instead.

If you had unlimited money for one week, how would you spend it?



Recklessly.

Who influenced you the most when you were a child?



My parents for sure. Not one more than the other. Both of them.

Do you have a certain brand of sock you like to wear in the summer vs the winter?

Nope, but I change them depending on which pair of shoes I'm wearing. I have a size 9.5 pair and size 10 pair (same shoes), so the thicker socks go with the bigger pair, generally worn during long road runs. The smaller pair get thinner socks and are for shorter road runs or long trail runs.

Do your feet sweat a lot?

Not really.

Would you rather run on a sun exposed path or a wooded path where the humidity gets contained?

Is there a slight breeze on the wooded path? If so, that one.

Do you carry a water bottle or a camelback on your long runs when it is really hot?

Camelback when I go into the wild.

Have you been running outside during this recent heat wave?

Yep.

What color describes you best and why?

Purple. Best of blue and red. And I eat a LOT of fucking blueberries. And blackberries.

What is your favorite pre-race fuel the night before?

The night before? Nothing special. The night before a long run where potential GI stuff wouldn't be a huge problem, lots of sugar-filled cereal.

What is a dream you have or something you would like to accomplish in your lifetime?

Complete dream: own a bed and breakfast with a large garden/orchard/some livestock, local-food themed, where I teach guests to cook seasonally and with real ingredients, as well as grow their own.

What’s your greatest fear?

Loved ones being hurt.

What would life be like if you could walk on walls?

Epic.

If you had unlimited money for one week, how would you spend it?

I'd invest a shitload of it to make sure I had it coming back to me for the rest of my life after that week.

Who influenced you the most when you were a child?

My brother or dad. Now it's probably my brother.

Have you been running outside during this recent heat wave? Yes.

What color describes you best and why? Gray, I'm pretty boring.

Have you been running outside during this recent heat wave? Yes. For me, it's been comfortably hot. But I wasn't here in Chicago during the heat advisory last week.

What color describes you best and why? Green. I like plants / trees and nature. I like to recycle and I hate wasting. And prefer to walk rather than drive when possible.

Better late than never..........



Do you have a certain brand of sock you like to wear in the summer vs the winter? No, I wear the same ones.

Do your feet sweat a lot? Yes, but I sweat a lot. My feet; however, only sweat when I'm running or playing tennis, not during the normal course of the day - so just when I exercise I guess.

Would you rather run on a sun exposed path or a wooded path where the humidity gets contained? Wooded as it is the sun that causes my issues with the heat.

Do you carry a water bottle or a camelback on your long runs when it is really hot? Depends on how long the run is.

Have you been running outside during this recent heat wave? Yes

What color describes you best and why? Fuschia or magenta - it just does.

What is your favorite pre-race fuel the night before? Pasta and a glass of red wine.

What is a dream you have or something you would like to accomplish in your lifetime? Nothing special, just to be the best parent to my daughter that I can, and that is a life long goal.

What’s your greatest fear? That I won't succeed at my goal above.

What would life be like if you could walk on walls? Upside down and sideways.

If you had unlimited money for one week, how would you spend it? Well, I'd love to say I'd pay the national debt, but since I don't trust congress, I guess I give it to those who need it but wouldn't simply spend it on beer.

Who influenced you the most when you were a child? My dad.

Do you have a certain brand of sock you like to wear in the summer vs the winter?
WrightSock (Cool Mesh) pretty much year-round.

Do your feet sweat a lot?
Yes.

Would you rather run on a sun exposed path or a wooded path where the humidity gets contained?
Probably wooded, unless there's a breeze.

Do you carry a water bottle or a camelback on your long runs when it is really hot?
I have taken bottles when I could refill, but on the trails I may need to use the Camelbak.

Have you been running outside during this recent heat wave?
The Pacific Northwest somehow missed the "hazy hot humid" meeting.

What color describes you best and why?
Green (and/or blue). Colors of nature.

What is your favorite pre-race fuel the night before?
Odwala Bar and rice milk.

What is a dream you have or something you would like to accomplish in your lifetime?
To keep my love of running alive for the rest of my life.

What’s your greatest fear?
I don't know.

What would life be like if you could walk on walls?
Messy. I'm notoriously bad at remembering to wipe my feet.

If you had unlimited money for one week, how would you spend it?
Create a whole bunch of endowments and fund a bunch of good works. That, and pay off my credit cards.

Who influenced you the most when you were a child?
My parents. Not sure which one, though.

I usually wear Adidas wicking socks (bought them by the bunch at Costco). I do have one pair of nice running socks that I'll break out for long runs and for races.

Do your feet sweat a lot?
No more than the average bear.

Would you rather run on a sun exposed path or a wooded path where the humidity gets contained?
Wooded path.

Do you carry a water bottle or a camelback on your long runs when it is really hot?
I use a fanny pack style belt that holds a thermos for runs over 15 miles.

Have you been running outside during this recent heat wave?
Haven't missed a run.

What color describes you best and why?
Blue...not because I'm sad.

What is your favorite pre-race fuel the night before?
Nothing special. I'll have my pre-marathon pasta the night before.

What is a dream you have or something you would like to accomplish in your lifetime?
If we're talking running, I've already achieved my main goal, which was to qualify for and run Boston. Even though my performance at Boston was far from what I had hoped, given the setbacks I've had, everything else from here on in has to be considered icing on the cake.
As for the rest of my life, that's a big question. I don't have a specific goal or dream, but when I approach the end of my life, I'd like to be able to look back with very few regrets, and very few things left on my bucket list (that sounds awfully trite, but it makes the point).

What’s your greatest fear?
I'm a parent...enough said.

What would life be like if you could walk on walls?
Getting rid of cobwebs and dust at the top of the wall and ceiling would be a heck of a lot easier.

If you had unlimited money for one week, how would you spend it?
I'd start by paying off all my debts, book a really nice trip, set my kids up for life, do a fair amount of charitable giving.

Who influenced you the most when you were a child?
I'll say my high school photography teacher. Along with directing me to the right college, she was an amazing teacher, an amazing inspiration, and just the best teacher I've ever had. Talk about someone who found their true calling...

Do you have a certain brand of sock you like to wear in the summer vs the winter? Not really.

Do your feet sweat a lot? No

Would you rather run on a sun exposed path or a wooded path where the humidity gets contained? Give me the shade.

Do you carry a water bottle or a camelback on your long runs when it is really hot? Usually neither - I have a several 20 mile routes scoped out with enough water fountains to not be a problem. I've not carried water on a run yet this year.

Have you been running outside during this recent heat wave? Yes. With low humidity and high elevation in Utah, you can beat the heat on the hottest of days - IF you get out early enough

What color describes you best and why? Hmm - I don't think I'm a color.

What is your favorite pre-race fuel the night before? Pasta - I've had a couple of good races with Pad Thai the night before - and a couple with straight-up spaghetti and marina sauce.

What is a dream you have or something you would like to accomplish in your lifetime? Raised a kid who's got his shit together.

What’s your greatest fear? Tat we will leave a world to the next generation that is worse off than we have been.

What would life be like if you could walk on walls? About 90 degrees away from a bad Lionel Ritchie video.

If you had unlimited money for one week, how would you spend it? Pay off the U.S. debt - That or buy me a sweet-ass house.


Who influenced you the most when you were a child? My Parents.
