You just had a personal best performance at FOC, how did that race go for you and what does it do for your confidence?

My race at FOC got me very excited for states and I feel that I am improving so much which is always great!

What are your goals for the the rest of the season?

My main goals for the rest of the season are placing top 10 at states or higher and my dream would be making it to New Englands. I have wanted to for a very long time.

How long have you been running and how did you get started?

I originally started running in sixth grade and I started because I knew I wanted to do a sport but I also knew I wasnt very good at any other sports like soccer or basketball so I thought why not run! After my first year of running I loved it and have been doing it ever since.

What is your favorite workout to do during xc season?

My favorite workout in cross country would probably be long runs. I enjoy just running for about 6 to 7 miles at my own pace with my friends. It just seems easy. I would deffinitly pick that over short speed one thing I cannot do is sprint. For whoever knows me knows I am not the best sprinter but distance is more my thing!

What shoes do you train in?

My trainers are Asics. I originally just switched from Nike frees and I love my Asics, they give more support for those long runs! But I do race in Nike rivals xc spikes and I love my spikes!

Favorite Post-race Meal?My favorite post race meal would definitely have to be something sweet! Any type of sugary snacks, candy or cookies and choclate milk are the best and taste even better after a race! If you ask anyone on my team they will tell you one thing I can eat a lot of is sugar!

Flat course or hills?

My favorite type of course would definitely have to be flat courses. I personally sometimes have knee problems when it comes to hills so the less hills the better!

Facebook , Instagram or Twitter?

 I do have a facebook Haley Lawrence and my instagram is haleyymaee123 It is private though but add me!

Favorite song at the moment?

My favorite song at the moment would be Shake it off by Taylor Swift. It is actually the girls cross country song this year. Every year we have a new team song and thats the one we all agreed on. It is a great pump up song before we race!

What professional athlete would you most like to meet?

Professional athlete I would most like to meet would probably be Gabby Douglas because I always wished I was good at Gymnastics as a young girl and she is young like me and just seems like an amazing athlete and person!
