*This is the start of a new series, where I will be featuring different runners & athletes on the blog! Enjoy!
Today I have a special post for you! I was very excited recently to befriend Chris Vargo via social media. Chris and I are from the same hometown and have many mutual friends but I actually didn’t know who he was until I started seeing his awesome running photos via Instagram! When I realized what an amazingly talented, passionate and fast runner Chris was, I knew I wanted to interview him for The Sweet Life.
He recently ran his first 50-mile race and demonstrated that he could actually win one of these things some day. I really relate to his passion for running and was excited when he agreed to answer all my nosy questions! Also, he lives in the beautiful state of Colorado so his photos are always amazing! Without further ado, here we go:
When do you begin running and when did it become something you started to love?
What’s your marathon training schedule like? What is your peak mileage? How important is hill work, speed work, track work, etc. for you?
You have mentioned that you have been sober for some time now. How has running has played a part in helping you stay sober?
Do you have any race day habits or superstitions – like having to wear a certain shirt, eat a certain breakfast, etc.?
