5 Things About Me: Molly Sughroue

  1. I impulsively got a puppy in college (best decision ever). He is a Mini Australian Shepherd named after David Bowie who is now 5 years old.
  2. I currently work a full-time job on the content marketing team for TrainHeroic – a training app that matches you with coaches and tracks your workouts.
  3. I eat Oreos by the sleeve, not the serving size.
  4. For one of my broadcast journalism classes in college, I was nominated for an award for covering a news story about allowing emotional support chickens within city limits.
  5. I’ve dropped my 1500 by 5 seconds, mile by 6 seconds, and 800 by 5 seconds since graduating college and being coached by Juli Benson.

5 Fast Questions

  1. What’s something people should add to their Netflix queue? Death Note or Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
  2. What’s your favorite sport or sporting event outside of running? I love basketball – it’s the second best sport!
  3. What’s your go-to pre-run meal or snack? Pro Bar Bolt Energy Chews are great when I need a quick boost.
  4. Do you have any connections to Raleigh or North Carolina? This is my first time in Raleigh!
  5. One positive change I’ve seen in the sport in the past year is… I’ve noticed what is considered “fast” for the women’s mile/1500 keeps getting faster, from US Champs Qualifying times to what makes it to NCAAs. I personally think it’s more than super shoes – I think it’s because more girls/women are staying in sport, and because women are continuing to push the limits and what people think they are capable of.
