Dimity McDowell

The one: Taller than the Transamerica Pyramid.
Lives in: Denver with two kids, one dog, and one husband.
Wishes: She could go faster without doing speedwork.
Gets fired up by: Annie Lennox (go tall women!); a few select Neil Diamond songs; and the knowledge that a big bowl of Phish Food ice cream awaits at the end of a long run.
Another wish: That she could wave a magic wand and have her left hip/glute/hamstring/knee, an area that has been angry for more than five years, reboot.
