Name: Nona Hillock
Hometown: Flagstaff, AZ
Favorite distance? I love the 13.1, but in the last year or so I’ve fallen in love with trail running and really want to try my hand at longer distances.
Do you train according to any particular plan/method? I don’t...I’ve never used a coach and tend to reflect on past training cycles and see what worked for me and what didn’t. Typically, I like to do one solid speed session a week, a mid-week “long run” which is typically half the distance of that week’s long run, 2 recovery runs and a weekend long run.
What 3 words best describe your typical race strategy? Patience, Hydrate, Enjoy
What’s on your running playlist? I don’t listen to anything while I run! I love to enjoy the sounds of the world around me.
What are your non-running hobbies? I’m a sucker for being outside and love hiking with my husband and dog. My husband is also big into off-roading, so I tag along on those trips every so often!
What do you like about Lily Trotters compression socks?I love them for recovery. They’re like a big hug for your calves.They feel fantastic and the compression is great. I also love the positive, strong message. Most other sock companies are for either gender, which is great, but Lily is dedicated to making great and stylish socks for the woman runner. I love seeing these badass women starting to have female representation in the gear world. It’s empowering and awesome.
