    Meet Alanna Dvorak our Member of the Month for July.

    Be sure to say hi to Alanna at our New Member Social, July 12th!

    1. When did you start running?
    I had done two 5k races in college, just for fun and to stay in shape for football (I played intercollegiate club football in college at the University of North Carolina. I was the captain and the lone woman on the team). I would say 2012 is when I really started. My first “real” race, that I actually trained for, was the Cherry Blossom Ten Miler in DC, which is where I’m from. Then, in 2013, I was interviewing some members of a local running club to discuss their experiences at the Boston Marathon and was motivated and encouraged to join that club later that year.

     

    2. Why do you run?
    To generally stay fit and because I enjoy the camaraderie of running. I’ve played a lot of sports growing up (football, hockey, basketball, soccer) and running is far and away the most welcoming.

     
    3. Do you prefer to run alone or in a group?
    Both. Running in a group helps keep you accountable and for track workouts and tempos, it helps push my pace to more than I think I can do. But a good run solo can help clear the mind.

     
    4. How long have you been a member of SPRR?
    Like a month, maybe. I just moved to Florida the last week of April.

     
    5. Do you have a favorite race, run or distance?
    I like cross country races, getting off the pavement. Plus, the team aspect of XC is awesome.

     
    6. What has been the highlight or biggest accomplishment of your running?
    My first triathlon I did I came in third in my age group. My parents were there, cheering very loudly, and it was nice to share that part of my life with my folks.

     
    7. Do you have a dream run or future accomplishment?
    I would like to eventually conquer a marathon and break 25 in the 5k, which I recognize is not that fast, but neither am I. I was hoping to eventually go sub-7 in the mile (there’s a few mile races in DC) but I haven’t seen too many in that distance here.

     
    8. When is your next race?
    July 20th, St. Pete Beach Race Series #2!

     
    8. What inspires you? Do you have a favorite quote?
    My family, especially my parents. They don’t necessarily care that much about running or sports but they have always encouraged me to persevere and demonstrated it in their own lives.

    THANK YOU ALANNA FOR BEING OUR MEMBER OF THE MONTH FOR JULY!
