Ted’s Run for Literacy - How long have you been running and why did you start?
Tyler Walsh - Just over a year. And because my wife made me. My wife wanted me to run the Dirty Donkey with her, so I thought I better train a bit so I wouldn’t pass out in the mud. After that I just continued to run and actually enjoy it.
TRL - What’s on your iPod when you run?
TW - I’m currently mid-way through Catching Fire, the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy (Please don’t Mock-ingjay me). I can nail two birds with one stone - I can feel good about getting outside to exercise and enjoy a good “read” at the same time.
TRL - If a movie/TV villain was chasing you who would have you running at top speed?
TW - The Borg - no one wants to be assimilated.
TRL - What’s the best tip you learned after one year of running?
TW - I think having a goal race is something that helps you to stay on track and gives you something to look forward to. Races are fun.
TRL - What does Ted’s Run for Literacy mean to you?
TW - It was my first 10k race, so it was an achievement for me, but I think it’s supporting a race/organization that brings two key elements of life success - reading and physical activity - to kids that need it most.
It's a god day to be alive.
