Rose Deal - President

When did you become a member of W.A.R.?

I joined W.A.R. in August of 2011. I was ready to end my five year hiatus from running and was ecstatic that Fort Smith had a running club. I first met people from W.A.R. at the first five dollar 5k I went to about that time!

What kind of races do you run?

Any distance... I love marathons. I love trail races. The 5k is my least favorite.

What was your favorite race and why?

The Little Rock Marathon. It was my very first marathon in March of 2012, and it’s where my PR was set in March of 2013. It's a great course with outstanding support, and the medal is fantastic.

What interests do you have outside of running?

Rock climbing, riding my bicycle, wine, beer and my store, Plato's Closet

Fun Fact (something nobody knows about you):

I played soccer in college, and was even Academic All-American.
