Name: Bethany Buczinski
Family Status: Single with my dog-child Riggins
Occupation: Medical Laboratory Scientist
Running Background: Only started running about a year ago. I have completed a couple 5K’s and I attempted my first ever 10K with the River Run.
What are you hoping to gain from your experience as a Local Joe?: As I train for the half, I am hoping to get into the best shape I’ve ever been in in my life. I am also hoping that I will will be able to prove to myself that hard work and consistency will help me accomplish things that I never thought I would be able to accomplish.
What is your biggest fear about being a Local Joe?: Choking at the race and disappointing my friends and family that have really encouraged me through all of it.
Favorite Workout Tune: Oh man! There are so many! I have my running playlist that has a little Jake Owen, Maroon 5, Miranda Lambert, Garth Brooks, Kelly Clarkson, Paramore and others. I mostly listen to a lot of up beat music that I can sing to in my head and escape the pain of running…hahahaha.
