The BQ(Q) – Courtney

Courtney may be the youngest women to fill out the Questionnaire. I wish she’d told us more, but still great to have another data point.





Age (at the time of first BQ):




Weight (at the time of first BQ):


At which marathon did you get your first BQ?

Revel Rockies Marathon

What was your finishing time?

Tell us a little about the race.

Fast and downhill.

How long had you been running when you ran your first BQ?

12 years

Did you run in college or high school?


What was your approximate lifetime mileage at the time of your first BQ?

No idea

How many miles did you run in the year before your first BQ?


Approximately how many races did you run in that year?


Did you follow a canned program? If so, which one? If not, can you give us an idea of what your training philosophy was?


Did you run with a running club or utilize a coach?


Did cross training play a role in your training? If so, how?

Yep- almost daily

Did speed work play a role or specific workouts play a role in your training? If so, how?


Any other thoughts you would like to share with those of working towards a BQ?

Good luck!

    I’ve been trying to finish mine — wanted to pull my logs and see if I could get some better data before I sent it in. But I was 22 for my first BQ so I can help with data on that end!

      So glad you’ll be taking part! I look forward to sharing your story. We need more women represented!
