To that end, Hevener has reached some lofty heights with her running. Twice, she finished as the top West Virginia female at the Distance Run.
"The motivation for the Distance Run, it's just kind of become traditional to run every year, because it's a big race in Charleston," Hevener said. "It's just fun to go out and do."
This year's Distance Run will be Hall's 10th. The race's 15 miles challenge most participants, but for Hall, it's one of her shortest events of the year.
"I ran some throughout my whole life, but I'm actually an endurance runner," she said. "I run ultra-marathons, the 50Ks, trail runs. I run a few road races a year and the Charleston Distance Run is one of them."
That's not to say Hall doesn't excel at the shorter distances too. She won her age group at the West Virginia 5K Championships June 22, with a time of 21:57.
Hall said her longest races include a 40-miler and 50K.
"It's definitely an achievement," she said of completing such a lengthy run. "It's like you use everything you have in you. You dig deep as you can to finish these."
Sometimes, it's the friends and fellow racers who push you to finish, said Hevener, who's also competed in endurance races.
"Just their motivation saying 'You can do it! You're going to do great.' It's just having that, surrounding yourself with people who cheer you on and motivate you," she said
What happens on the course fades as a secondary thought compared to the bonds built supporting each other, though the Ridge Runner girls will look to make some memories with their fast times, too.
"The friendships that I made and the things that we have in common with running, even though we might not be running together every day or a few times a week, we are still constantly cheering each other on and motivating each other," Hevener said. "Just kind of being each other's biggest fans, I guess."
