You are a very successful professional runner and you had a great college career at the University of Texas, but when did it all start for you and when did you first start really running?
Your high school career was extremely successful. You had a top 4 finish at Footlocker and you won the individual title at Nike Cross Nationals. When did you start thinking of running in college?
What type of mileage did you run in high school?
What was the thought process when you graduated from the University of Texas to go in the professional running route instead of using your business degree?
You seem to be using that business degree now with your newer LutzRunning camp in Flagstaff. Can you tell us about the camp?
Is LutzRunning still doing camps in Texas too or just Flagstaff?
How long is the camp in Flagstaff?
What can the kid expect when they come?
Where do the kids stay at your camp?
Some camps have a lot of running involved and some camps have less. How is the running aspect of your camp?
One of my favorite places to run is Buffalo Park. Do you have any plans to run there?
