Makin’ My Fame

So, you’ve all heard of a little publication called Runner’s World, right? It’s a magazine… for runners. You know… full of running news, information, stories and such? Well, yours truly was quoted in the December 2008 issue in the article about the Nike+ Human Race 10K.

I was interviewed by Jennifer Van Allen, who was actually featured in their RW Daily blog earlier this summer because of her win in the 20in24 Ultra Marathon.

It was interesting the amount of questioning that went into getting one tiny quote in the magazine. It’s also kind of weird to see it in print, in context of the whole article. I guess it’s just weird because yes, I did run in Cedar City, Utah like it mentions but I’m from Las Vegas. And since Cedar is where I grew up, I kind of wish that it had my full name in the attribution, that way any people from Cedar that don’t know my married name might recognize me. It’s silly, I know. It’s not like anybody is really going to care about this random person that was quoted in the story, but it’s exciting nonetheless.

For those of you who are new to the site or would just like to re-read, here is my post on running the Nike+ Human Race 10K that started this whole thing.

I’m beginning to feel like a Nike+ pitch-person on here!


  1. That’s so cool! I noticed when Runners World commented on that post (I subscribe to your comments). I kept meaning to ask you what became of that. Kinda neat how the media uses bloggers to find interviewees. I’ve seen that happen on several other blogers too. Maybe someday it will happen to me. Congrats!

  2. Alissa: Thanks! I’d love to see you get picked up by a magazine or some other media source too!

    Chris: Yeah, if I had that kind of power with Nike. I’d make them fix it for all of my running/blogging buddies. And I get my hands on one of those newer iPod remote watches they’re releasing!

  3. That is very cool. You should be so proud.

    Wrote about the Gym Girl on my site tonight. Honesty, it’s a great skirt but I feel like the $90 bucks I paid for the whole outfit and the post race food is very expensive! We paid $85 for the America’s Finest City Half.

  4. Stub: Yeah, I’ll leave my sweaty broken iPod Nano and a copy of this article to you in my will. Hopefully you’ll be around to collect and appreciate those items! 😉

    Rachel: $90 does seem like a bit much for a 5K, but you got a whole outfit! Did you get a whole outfit at the America’s Finest City Half? I’m going to check out your Gym Girl review now!
