Name: Carolyn Guss
Hometown: Burlingame, CA
Bucket List Races/Runs/Activities? London Marathon because that’s my home town. Also, the Escape from Alcatraz triathlon because it sounds cool.
Do you train according to any particular plan/method? I try and be really balanced across a range of disciplines - run, bike, swim, strength training. I will always choose running first. In the run up to a race I follow a plan and tend to work on going over the distance - endurance over pace.
What’s on your running playlist? A whole lot of upbeat dance music. I also have a 180bpm playlist for tempo runs.
If you could choose anyone to run with, who would it be and why? Paula Radcliffe - who inspired me to run longer distances. Also Sheryl Sandberg as I love her story
Favorite quote: If you want something done, ask a busy person. Also - what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
What do you like about Lily Trotters compression socks? The styles - they are so cute. Also, I like that they don’t move at all on my foot when I run - it’s like I’m not even wearing them
