Another Red Head Runs or Used To

I don’t think you can blame me for being a little biased toward red heads. My brother and I were the only red heads for miles and miles growing up. We looked like freaks. So, we I grew up and discovered I wasn’t an alien I was delighted! I was extra delighted to find fellow red heads that love running, like Morgan from Caution Red Head Running.image

Unfortunately, Morgan is out of commission right now due to an injury. But that’s part of the trials and tribulations of being a runner so I really wanted her to guest post anyways!

1. Where is your favorite place to run?

Back when I first moved to Michigan I lived near this secret little path that ran through the woods behind a subdivision and it was so beautiful!!! AutumnRunning

2. What is your favorite thing to eat after you run?

There is this great little bagel place in the next town over from where we live that Spike and I love to go get breakfast bagel sandwich’s at after long run’s on the weekends. I always get a lox bagel with cream cheese! Mmmmm!!!

3. What is your favorite piece of running gear?

Besides my garmin, Hermes, obviously, it’d def be my signature "race rocker."

4. Name the #1 race you dream of running…

There are so many amazing races out there, I want to do them all!!!

5. Which race that you’ve ran is your favorite?

Huge toss up between my first and second marathons. My first (Chicago 2009) was so memorable for obvious reasons, but the second (Gasparilla 2010) was more local and ran with my amazing running group with all my friends there to spectate my big sub-4 finish. Swoon!morgan red head running

6. What is your favorite song to run to?

It’s been so long since I’ve ran that I honestly can’t remember what my go-to song used to be. That’s sad. Sad smile

    My favorite race so far has been a really small race called “Running for Risa.” Risa was a high school girl diagnosed with a rare cancer and her insurance company wouldn’t pay for it. One of the ways they raised funds was to hold a marathon/half/5k in her honor. Sadly she passed away before the race happened, but the funds still went to help her family pay for expenses. The race itself was very simple but the community coming together and seeing her friends and family was very heartwarming. It was also an absolutely perfect weather day at the lake.

    That’s so hard when you can’t do something you really love because of an injury. Hopefully you heal quickly so you can get back out there.

    Chicago sounds like an amazing race. That city is so beautiful and it must have been such a great experience.

    My favorite race so far is a point-to-point 10k called “Pike’s Peek” that’s held in Maryland every year. It’s my favorite distance and also a net downhill finish 😉

    My favorite race was an adventure 5k called the “Go Commando” in St. Paul, MN in June. It was an absolute blast to do this down and dirty race with a big bunch of my girlfriends. My other favorite has to be my most recent, which was also my first half marathon in Ashland, Wisconsin called Whistlestop. The trail is on an old rail road track, so it is all flat and heavy packed dirt. When you come up to the finish and old engine blares the horn. So amazing to spend time with friends that are runners.
