In addition to Running Club, Emily is involved in Ski Club and the Outdoors Club and works at the campus cafeteria. Her interests besides the clubs involve the outdoors, like hammocking, hiking and going on adventures. She also likes “Tree hugging, Madi and Tori, stalking Squanda, kissing running club boys (Wisconsin), and long walks on the beach.” With conflicting schedules, we had a chance to interview Emily over email:
“I joined running club because I saw Madi and Tori running one day, and I really wanted to be like them. My favorite aspect of the club is the social aspect. As soon as I found out this club loved running and loved drinking about as much as running, I knew the people in this club were my people.My least favorite part is the actual running. I'm just a social runner :). I ran track and cross country throughout high school. I'm not quite sure on my favorite events... Totally depends on the shape I'm in. However since I'm slower than I was in high school, I'm starting to like longer distances. Hoping to train for a marathon in the summer! Favorite memory? Oh gosh... Nirca Nats is always a fun memory! Long live #nircasluts,” Emily wrote.
