In February I got a phone call from Lisa at UltraRunning Magazine. I was surprised and excited and honored. Our call went something like this:
Lisa: “We’d like to have you write an article for the magazine.”
Me: “Are you serious? I would love to!”
Me: “What would you like the focus of the article to be about?”
Lisa: “Your love of Hostess products.”
Me: “Are you serious? I would love to! That would be a piece of cake. Literally.”
And so began my correspondence with Lisa at UltraRunning Magazine.
Since then she has sent me some really funny things, including a link for how to make homemade Twinkies. She also remembered my disdain for Brussels sprouts, and emailed the most awesome picture ever which her husband John took at a grocery store:
I was excited when she told me that she and magazine editor John Medinger would be coming to the Zion 100 race. Our paths finally crossed at mile 35 when I was exhausted and it was so hot outside that I may have seen Alf on the side of the trail cheering for me. This was yet another highlight of my race experience:
The Hostess article was published in this month’s issue. If you’re interested, head over to your local running store and buy a copy. I’ll share the article with you next week too. They do such an awesome job with the magazine; I really feel grateful to be associated with these guys.
