Interview with Derek

by Zion Reyes

For my beat I conducted an interview with the “Zingy” Derek Tingey, since he is a varsity cross country runner. Here are the questions I asked him. How often do you have a race and what do you do to prepare the morning of your race? Who do you consider as the big rival for this year and how do you plan to beat them? Lastly, how many miles do you think you’ve ran in the last six months.

Here are his answers in order. Every week and I drink a lot of water. El Capitan because of their top runner, Matt Machnov. I plan to beat them by training harder than them and studying the course we will be racing each other on next. In the last 6 months, I’ve probably ran approximately 1000 miles.
