Event: Half and 4 Miler
About Shannon: Shannon is a Detroit native who’s called Dayton, Ohio, home for the past 10 years. She is a writer and communications professional, and has been a runner since high school. She has two sons, aged 7 and 4, and is excited to be running her first half-marathon in 10 years this fall at the Queen Bee!
Favorite Song to listen to while working out: Anything by Michael Jackson or from the Dayton funk catalog — Ohio Players are a fave!
Special pre-race ritual: I like to have a small coffee and a bagel before a run.
Advice for Queen Bee participants: Just get out there and try it! You’ll have so much support to finish and have a great time while doing it!
