10 Questions with Charlie:

What’s the most useless talent you have?

I can curl my tongue. That is the only thing that comes to mind…Useless I don't know?


What is the dumbest way you have been injured?

Not Running Related - Falling out of a tree and ending up with a broken arm when I was about 9 years old.


What’s the most interesting thing you’ve read or seen this week?

“Really Ugly Shark Tired Of Being Mistaken For Hammerhead” reported by the Onion? Fake news, who knows these things?? It was a semi intriguing read!! Poor ugly shark

What is the most distant place you’ve visited? Innsbruck, Austria

Favorite running shoes

Altra Lone Peak 3.5. I love this shoe, they were my 3rd pair of Lone Peaks. I'll keep buying them until they discontinue them. Gotta love Altras!!


 

Favorite time of day to run

In the morning, right before sunrise. There is nothing like watching the sun come up over the horizon while running. It’s intoxicating. If you are a runner you get it, If not that sucks for you. Sleep tight.

 

Favorite song on your playlist

Mess is Mine - by Vance Joy


What accomplishment are you most proud of?

Oh boy, I’d have to say my first 50 Miler at Brazos Bend this past December. That was a very special day for me, not only for the accomplishment but for the people I got to share it with.
 

Favorite ice cream flavor

Coffee!! A close second is Pistachio

 

What trait do you like most about yourself?

I've been told that I’m very “Go with the flow..” For example if someone asks me….. “Hey, what pace or finish time are you looking for at a race?”… I’ll generally say, “However this body performs today is what I got...” I’m very chill that way and I like to think that is how I am in everyday life. So I suppose I can be fairly chill….Relaxed and out going perhaps?
