Q: What motivated you to apply to be a Local Joe?
A: My daughter (Lacy Hansen). I told her I had a friend that should apply and she said I should. After a lot of consideration, I decided I could do this and applied.
Q: What fears do you have to train for your race?
A: I'm not sure. I am full of all kinds of emotions. Definitely looking forward to having instruction to help me with this journey.
Q: What is your background with running? Other athletics?
A: I have run many 5K's and a few 4 mile races. I try to get at least a 2-3 mile run in about three times a week. I go to Zeal Fitness once a week with two other ladies and we are trained by Hanna Rosov. I have also been going to a Zumba class on Saturday mornings for about a year.
Please welcome our newest group of Joes. These nine individuals have agreed to let us closely observe their fall training as they all strive to meet first-time goals, redemptive goals, or even bucket list goals. The Local Joes will begin training with GoRun Wichita's Start2Finish Training Program on Saturday, June 20th. Be sure to follow this unique group along their journey and watch as they work their way to the finish line on Sunday, October 11th.
