From the August 2009 issue of Runner's World
When did you start running? I grew up in a running family. My parents caught the running craze in the mid '70s and we grew up doing family runs. I've been running now easy for 35 years.
Do you remember your first race? My dad was a track coach and he'd get all the neighborhood kids together and take us to Anchorage for track meets when we were very young. Anchorage is 50 miles from Wasilla. And ever since we were little we'd do 10-K races as family fun runs.
So you grew up running with your siblings? Yes, and my siblings and parents were better runners than I. My mom and dad were marathoners and one of my sisters is a marathoner. Dad ran Boston a couple times, mom would win her age group or at least get a ribbon in the big races, and I would just try to keep up.
Sounds like your skills were more suited to basketball? Well, I appreciated the fact that in running I needed guts more than anything. I could do fine just being really determined. I was thankful that I didn't need a whole lot of skills to run.
And running was your first athletic activity, even before basketball? Yes. My parents instilled in us that fitness and running were going to be a part of our lives growing up. My siblings and I are all still very active. A lot of days I look forward to getting out to run and think and plan.
Was there ever a period when you didn't run? Only when I was too pregnant to run. During each of my five pregnancies I worked out until right before the babies were born.

My wife is a marathon runner and this is just one more reason why she loves Sarah.
I’m ready for Sarah to run.
Anyone on or off the Palin ping, write me.
Heck, I’m ready for her to take the oath of office!
I tell you what, Sarah looks amazing no matter wear she is. Not like the Evil one
should have said ‘where’
should have said where
both work for me...no matter what she wears or where she wears it...
She lists Van Halen and AC/DC among her favorite running tunes. Yet another thing for me to like about her. :)
Ma’am, we thank you for your service and it an honor to have you here.
I just wanna murder the republicans who stayed home.
WOW! She’s Governor-licious! In a few years she’ll become the hottest president the world has ever seen. And I predict she’ll be a good and fair leader.
If that politics thing doesn’t work out, she could always become a pinup model!
"If she was president, she'd be Babe-raham Lincoln."
If she were President she would be Baberaham Lincoln.
