Senior Spotlight: Madison White (Bear River)

How did you first get started running?

What was the greatest obstacle you've had to overcome in your high school career?
Probably a lot like any runner, I've dealt with a few injuries and an iron deficiency. None of them were major, but at the time they sucked and kept me from running sometimes.

How do you prepare yourself mentally and physically for a race?
I take a few minutes to myself to run over the course in my head. Also I usually like to start warming up before everyone else so I have plenty of time to prepare and I don't feel unprepared at the start line.

Any Pre Race superstitions?
Nope, but I usually wear the same pair of race socks.

Most memorable race?

Region my junior year. It was such a close race the whole time and I ended up winning by out sprinting the girl next to me in the last 100 meters. I ran my guts out that race.

What is the best piece of advice you have received from either a coach or teammate?
Mentality is 90% of what makes someone a good runner.

I've signed to run at UVU! I don't really know what I want to study though.
