Taking a cue from Vogue‘s successful 73 Questions video series, the 2018 Boston Marathon champion Des Linden answered a few of her own questions—26.2, to be exact—ahead of her big race at the TCS New York City Marathon on November 4.

And of course, in true Desi fashion, she had her own comical thoughts about her on-camera interview.

See what else she had to say in the 2:30 clip and what she considers her guilty pleasure, what her dog is named after and how many miles she puts into her Brooks before switching them out.
