Question and Answer with Renee
What accomplishment are you most proud of: Qualifying for 2010 Nationals in my first full season, with my first point series race (I'd only done sprint distances prior).
When you're not racing, you like to: Spend time with my spouse, my number 1 supporter!
What's the craziest experience you've ever had with XTERRA (traveling, racing or training)?
What's the best thing about racing? Being in the moment and having to take on whatever the course dishes out that day.
What is the coolest piece of gear you own? My prescription swimming goggles. The ability to discern the buoys from the mass of swimmers is nothing short of amazing.
What is your favorite quote or words of wisdom?
Role model/Inspiration/Favorite athlete: Age grouper-Libby Harrow; Pro-Shonny V.
What do you do when you aren't training/racing? Besides work, which supports my XTERRA habit, and spending time with my spouse and critters, I'm working with our local mountain bike team (Level X) to broaden into a non-profit organization advocating for and encouraging cycling within the community-all types and for all age groups.
Which 2011 XTERRA races do you plan to attend?
Favorite XTERRA venue: Camp Eagle (TX)
Dreaded XTERRA venue: Don't have one yet, but there's got to be one out there somewhere.
Top 3-8 racing accomplishments:
What's your favorite aspect of XTERRA? The venues are awesome, but XTERRA wouldn't happen without the friendly and supportive XTERRA Tribe--staff, volunteers, athletes, family and friends.
