Courier: What inspires you to run?

Worley: I started running in middle school just to get in shape for basketball and it just started to become something I love to do. I love coming out, working hard, hanging out with teammates and just trying to get better. Running is also a great way to worship.

C: What’s your mindset when you are about to race?

W: I just try to beat who I can. I just go hard and give everything I can. I’ll start out at a steady rhythm for the first mile and just keep it the rest of the way.

C: What are your goals for this season?

W: I’d like to go low 26 in the 8k and win at the regional meet and see what happens after that at the National Championship.

C: What are your plans for after COD?

W: I’m thinking about transferring to NIU but we’ll see what happens because lot can happen until then.
