Name: Sharon McDowell-Larsen
Location: Colorado Springs, Co.
Hometown: South Africa & Canada
Career: 25 years
Favorite Place to Run: Garden of the Gods & any mountain trail
Funniest Running Story: This didn’t happen during a run, but after a tri race. My friend and I who had both won our age groups were a bit cocky. We got our awards, headed to the car and drove through the Start/Finish, in front of the awards ceremony. We forgot the bikes were on top of the car. Driving under the start/finish banner it hooked on the bike rack on top of the car and proceeded to rip the rack off the top of the car. The awards ceremony came to a halt as I slunk down in my car.
Favorite Race: Any mountain trail race!
Quote: The will to win means nothing without train
2014 Goal(s): Finish the Leadville 100, Run R to R to R, have fun at local trail races
Why be a part of VRB team: It’s a cool store, help promote a local business that serves my favorite sport, have people to run with when in Breck and learn new trails.
