10 Questions with Beth Walsh

Sports Background before triathlons?

The college triathlon: beer-party-Taco Bell. Prior to my college triathlon days, however, I did play field hockey and lacrosse throughout high school.

Pre-race ritual?

Mainucure & Pedicure 72 hours from race day. Polish selection must compliment race kit or shoes.

Strange place you bodyglide?

I don't bodyglide. Chafing during a race is good- helps me move my focus from deep pain in the legs & lungs to superficial chafing pain. Seriously. *editor's note: Wow, most original and HK response to this question I've had yet. Two words: BAD ASS!

What are the two most played songs on your ipod?

"The Champ" - Nelly
"The Fighter"- Gym Class Heroes

What do you crave when you are bonking?

Salt & Vinegar chips & watermelon

How many #2's pre-race?

The standard 1, plus 1 for good luck = 2

What is an obscure website you visit? it's like the US Weekly of running blogs.

What's in your special needs bag?

Popchips & redbull

Team Macca or Team Crowie?


What's your ride?

Women's Cannondale Slice Hi-Mod

*Beth is making her pro debut this weekend at the Desert International Triathlon. My jaw is still slightly agape from Beth's bad-ass 3:09 marathon split in Kona two years ago. You can follow Beth in her first year racing as a pro at her website:
