Kelly Bacon, Arlington, VA

Why do you race?  I like that AR is a multi-sport.  Just when I get tired of one thing…I’m doing another.

How did you come to AR?  I married into it.  My husband Andy has been racing for years and got me into the sport while we were dating.

How did you come to THT?  I began running with the team during our weekly Tuesday night runs.

What do you like about THT?  Why do you stay?  Camaraderie.  A great group of people!

Something you’ve learned through AR that you take with you beyond the race course?  Perseverance…sometimes the race goes to not the fastest, but those that keep moving forward.

What does the future hold for you and AR?  Lifetime of running around in the woods.

Specialty? Running.

Favorite pieces of gear?  My Lupine Piko X Duo Headlamp; Buff; sugoi helium jacket; Specialized Epic!

Favorite race/event?  Calleva

Favorite Movie? The Notebook
