CNW Athlete, Gail Hall shares her experiences and background as a runner.
How did you first get involved in Club?
I was approached to join for Club nationals in 2002 in Rocklin California. Prior to that I was sponsored by other shoe companies and raced representing them (Reebok, Mizuno, then Brooks) My prior successes were on the roads and I tend to be a "rhythm" runner, meaning I can lock into a pace an just grind away...which is why I was so successful in the marathon. (Cross country is very different!) Because I felt I stunk at cross country, I guess I just avoided it. Anyway, I got talked into going that year and we masters women had to run a 10k.
