Why you should win a marathon

Ceramics artist Kathy Fodness is a prolific, inspiring presence in our SBMA studios.

For the great majority of us, some SBMA staff members included, it’s nearly impossible to imagine running a marathon, let alone winning one.  If you’ve ever watched a marathon in person and seen the leaders at mile 20 or so, you know those people have got something that you just don’t.  And when this year’s Sunburst Marathon winners sprint across that finish line on June 2, they’ll get something else you wish you had: artwork by Kathy Fodness.

Native American ceramic artist Kathy Fodness has been a friend of SBMA for many years, volunteering with youth classes and events, and frequenting our studios to perfect her artistic techniques.  So when the Sunburst Races asked us to commission a local artist to create the first place awards for the 2012 races, Kathy came to mind instantly.  Given the way these awards are turning out, we know we made the right choice.  We’ll give you a sneak peek at what Kathy has been creating, but we have to warn you – this click may cause the sudden dusting off of running shoes!
