Runners Feed: Take us through a typical day of your life
Scott MacPherson: I wake up, drink a few cups of Ruta Maya Coffee, (local austin roaster) and get ready for my run. I will either meet my training group (Team Rogue Elite) or run on my own. After my run I make some breakfast and head to Rogue Running in downtown Austin, where I do PR, Marketing and Coach local marathoners. Many days I try to fit in a massage at lunch and core/strength training at Pure Austin Fitness in the afternoon. After coaching in the evening, I go home ,cook dinner, and try to get to bed as early as possible.
SM: I am fortunate enough to be a part of Team Rogue Elite, we are sponsored by Adidas and receive a monthly stipend for living expenses. I also work part time for my sponsor, Rogue Running. It is an Austin original Running retail and training center. We train about 1,000 runners in the area, everyone from the beginner to the experienced veteran. Rogue has a great atmosphere and community.
