Throughout the 2007-08 season, IUHOOSIERS.com will sit down and get to know the Indiana women's cross country team with a series of question and answer sessions called "Setting the Pace". Junior Wendi Robinson is first on the list.
If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
The Amazon rainforest, Egypt, or New Zealand.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
As an African Safari tour guide, or maybe an ice cream taste tester. I've got a lot of ideas, but I haven't really narrowed it down yet. I think my education at Indiana University will prepare me for just about anything.
Finish this sentence - Since coming to Indiana, I've learned:
life can often be unpredictable, but with any unexpected change also comes new opportunities.
What is your favorite childhood memory?
Just spending time with my younger sister and brother, we always had fun together. When I was about seven, we all had chicken pox, and my sister and I dressed my brother up in one of our dresses, and all the jewelry from our Pretty Pretty Princess game. Poor kid, I hope he doesn't read this.
Something that many people don't know about you is:
I went to three different schools for kindergarten (I moved twice in one year).
The teammate I most admire is who, and why?
Sophomore Sarah Pease, because she has such a positive attitude, works hard at every practice, and has improved so much over the past year.
Name one thing that you wish you were better at?
Well besides running, I would have to say playing guitar. I took an intro to guitar class last semester, and really enjoyed it, but I'm still not very good.
What makes Indiana special from any other program?
My favorite thing about Bloomington is:
Well I can't say I've had much experience with other collegiate track programs, and our program at Indiana has undergone some significant changes in the past year. I guess as this year progresses the particular things that make Indiana special will become clearer.
The running trails are great. Jiffy Treet is a close second.
What are your goals for this year?
I'll go with an easy, non-committal answer and say to run faster and place higher at the Big Ten meet. Qualifying for Nationals would always be great too.
