Q1:  Describe your experience with indoor track this season.  What were some highlights?

A1:  This is my first year running indoor track, and I’m really enjoying it. I’ve won a total of five events in my five meets so far this season, and everything is going well.

Q2:  Along with running, what are some other hobbies you enjoy?

A2:  I don’t have a lot of free time between school and running, but I like to hang out with my friends on the weekends.

Q3:  Are you planning on competing at the state level for the outdoor track season as well?

A3:  Qualifying for outdoor states is a little different and probably slightly more difficult, but I’m definitely planning to return to the state meet this year.

Q4:  Along with the 800, do you participate in any other events?

A4:  This indoor season I have run the 800, the mile, and the 400.  The 800 has been my strongest event so far, but I just missed states in the other two events.
