I'm Lisa Valenti, 54, retired from the Office of The Federal Public Defender, and now coaching swimming at Paseo Aquatics. Favorite PR? Probably my swim split in my first Ironman in 1989. I came out with the top ten pro women - it was amazing!

1. Awesomeville. The good…
It’s home
Great active community
It’s easy to hop on my bike and be on a fun ride just minutes from home


2. The bad…
Traffic
Wind
Growing too fast



3. The ugly…
Muggings on the bike trail

4. Best local trails to run.
Charlie Canyon
Haskell Canyon
San Francisquito Creek Trail

5. Places I'd like to visit.
Any tropical island
Italy - anywhere there!
Alaska


6. Stuff I think about while racing.
where’s the buoy?
where’s my bike?
where’s my legs?
where’s the finish line?


7. Racers, elite or slugs, I admire.
Paul Vernier - he’s not elite, but he’s no slug!
Jens Voigt
Chuck Teixeira


8. Best local places to chow.
Newhall Refinery
Fishtail Grill
Marston’s
Wolf Creek

I'm Eric, 40, and eldest of the three Schranz kids. I host and manage a website dedicated to endurance running and outdoor sports. My proudest PR is a 6:37 at a 50 miler about 5 years ago. Yes, it was flat.

1. Awesomeville. The good...
When I left the SCV 20 years ago, it was Valencia, and that's how it'll remain to me.
1.1 The hills! You've got great hills to train on! Why whenever I'm in town do I see people running on the roads or along the dang wash???
1.2. Vincenzos.
1.3. The smell of the COC track.


2. The bad...
2.1 It's a long drive for me.


3. The ugly...
3.1 One of the many things my folks taught me is to never talk poorly about anyone's hometown, including your own.

4. Best local trails to run.
4.1 I live in Sacramento, and I can run a combination of equestrian single track with a little bit of bike path from here to Lake Tahoe. One way, uninterrupted by roads is 140 miles.
4.2 Outside of Sacramento, the Flume Trail above Incline Village on the NE side of Lake Tahoe is the most beautiful trail I've ever run.
4.3 Anything around Cool and Auburn. We've got hundreds of miles of trails that all share or intersect with the Western States trails.
4.4 My treadmill. I can't always get out to run, and if the kids are napping, I'll jump on the treadmill and take care of business.
4.5 We've got a great bike path along the American River that goes from my neighborhood to Folsom Lake.

5. Places I'd like to visit.
5.1 Europe with my wife.
5.2 The Canary Islands
5.3 Swiss Alps with just running friends
5.4 Belgian farmhouse beer tour
5.5 Alaska

6. Stuff I think about while racing.
Depends on the distance of course.
6.1 If it's a short race I'm thinking about "you only need to push for x more minutes."
6.2 If it's a long race I'm thinking "you need to run for x more hours...maintain...adjust...reserve...eat..."

7. Racers, elite or slugs, I admire.
7.1 I like Zach Miller's racing style. All out, balls to the wall.
7.2 Karl Meltzer's ability to show up at at nearly any ultra, fit or not, and do pretty damn well.
7.3 Frank Bozanich. 71 years old and tough as nails, take no prisoners running at any distance.
7.4 Stephanie Howe. She's on a great streak right now and does it with a smile, modesty, and professionalism.

8. Best local places to chow.
8.1 Bandera Steakhouse for special occasions.
8.2 Pancake Circus for a shocking mix of clowns, poor service, and gigantic pancakes.

9. Favorite wine/beer/beverages.
9.1 I'm on a sour beer kick. Gouzes, Ouzes, most Lambics...
9.2 Coffee while camping
9.3 Those Pelligrino cans with the foil on top. Oh dear god those are good.
9.4 Pretty much ang Gewurtzraminer.
9.5 Sudwerk California Dry Hopped Lager


10. People I'd like to meet, dead or alive.
10.1 Christopher Hitchens
10.2 Thomas Jefferson
10.3 Lee Harvey Oswald
