Stage Race Sunday! Who’s coming to play in the desert this year?
Hailing from our Nation’s Capital, will our returning female champion Sue Heineman bring her bassoon for the evening’s campfire?
Marital Status: Married
Occupation: Bassoonist (i.e. I play in a symphony orchestra)
Years running: 3+
Years running ultras: 1+
Ultras I have done: PHUNT 50k, Greenbelt 50k, Bull Run Run 50 miler, Desert RATS.
Favorite race and why: Definitely desert RATS because it’s in Utah!
Best results in races: Somehow I won this event last year (among the females) but only because several much better runners got sick at some point from the heat.
Tell us something about yourself, running related or other: I feel pressure to come up with something clever here. That probably says something about my personality. Generally I am enthusiastic about life and try to see humor and adventure wherever I go.
What’s your favorite way to train for Desert RATS: Trail running with my rescue pit bull Bella
What are your goals for Desert RATS: Just to have a good time and enjoy the experience.
