Q&A: Ashley Burger

Why do you run?

I started running when I was super young and fell in love with it. It’s a huge part of my life now and could never give it up. I just love the way I feel after a hard workout or solid race effort.

What inspired you to join RCTC?

I dropped out of college after my first year, which meant that I had to stop competing sooner than I wanted to. I’ve been looking for a club to join ever since as I still have some unfinished business I want to accomplish. I also love the community you meet through running. I heard great things about Rose City and thought being part of this team would help me accomplish my goals.

Do you have any running superstitions?

I have a whole pre-race ritual that I do before every race, starting the day before. Also always wear the same clothes, straighten my hair, and tie a bow in my ponytail

Do you like to run alone or in a group?

Running is always better with friends!

What do you do outside of running?

I own an online business, I spend a lot of time with family, and travel a lot to Florida to visit my (now) fiancé!

Any goals for the next year?

I am currently working on qualifying for the NYC marathon. My goal is to qualify with my 1/2 marathon time, which is only currently 4 minutes off
