SUMMER FRONT RUNNER #3 EMMIE SKOPEC
 
1. My two really big goals for the season are to run under 15 minutes for a 4k, and to be on the balcony at the state meet- both as a team and individually.
2. My biggest inspiration is my family. My dad and his brothers all started running when they are in high school, and still do today. Gabby and Jessie also inspire me because they have gotten fast so quickly and are incredibly committed to the sport.
3. My biggest competition is myself and my personal bests, but I also really want to beat the City High girls every chance I can get.
4. I ran in a lot of fun runs as a kid, but I really fell in love with running when my dad started taking me to the drake relays.
5. My favorite track and field athlete is Mary Cain because she is 17 and has already ran a 1:59 800, a 4:04 1500 and a 15:45 5k.

2nd FRONT RUNNER QUESTIONS
 
 
1: My goals for this season are to run four miles under 30 minutes and do the gold group workouts.

2: I don't have a specific person who is my inspiration. All the girls on the team are my inspiration. They work hard, run their best, and are really nice and encouraging. They all make me want to do my best in and out of practice.
...

3: I'm not really sure who my biggest competition is yet. I think that once we have our first meet I will be able to see who it is.

4: I became interested in running when I did junior high cross country in 8th grade.

5: My favorite cross country runner is Lynn Jennings

SUMMER FRONT RUNNER #1

 

Name: Gabby Skopec, 9th grade

 

 1.     What are your goals for this season?

  

My goals for this season include improving throughout the season, running varsity in a meet, making friends, and becoming a smarter runner.

 

 2.     Who is your biggest inspiration?

 

 My biggest inspiration is the professional marathoner, Diane Nukuri Johnson, who lives and trains in Iowa.

 3.     Who is your biggest competition? Either in your grade or all, from your team or any girls in the state?

 

My biggest competition is probably myself, because I know that even though I am technically competing with all the other girls the only person I can control is myself and if I can push myself to become better than that's all I can do.

 

 4.     When did you start becoming interested in running?

 

 I have always been somewhat interested in running because my dad likes to run, but I definitely became more interested after my 8th grade cross country season.

 

5.     Who is your favorite track and field or xc athlete?

 

 My favorite track and field athlete is Mary Cain.
