About Me

Hi, I'm Whitney! I am a middle of the pack runner who discovered the fun of triathlons in 2009. Join me in my adventures in life and training. I run with the Rush Running team and enjoy the fun that comes with such a supportive group of friends who understand what running means to me. I'm newly discovering road biking and the fun that it entails.

Spectating Party - Hogeye Marathon

Sunday was the 35th Annual Hogeye Marathon and Half Marathon in Fayetteville.  The Rush Running team hosted a water stop on the course.  The water stop was at miles 7.5 and 8.5 of the half marathon course and mile 22 of the full marathon course.  We had a great sound system blasting out the tunes and a fun party atmosphere to pump up the runners.  I think the runners appreciated the support and quite a few took advantage of the optional beer stop we offered too!  Here are some pictures of the fun we had!

Margaritaville according to the Rush Running crew!

Keeping runners like Cathy refreshed with water and Gatorade or the optional beer!


Super-soakers were used to cool down the runners in the hot temps.
Yes, a man in a hula skirt will make you pick up the pace!

  1. Sounds like good times. Volunteers can make or break a race. Looks like you all made it. May have to add that one to my marathon list one of these years.
