Meet RC3 Chick—Bonnie Mull

We're proud of how cool our RC3 chicks are both in running and in their daily lives. This month we would like you to meet another RC3 running Mom Bonnie...

Bonnie with her family. Husband, Steve and daughter, Tia

Name/Nickname: Bon, B, Bonster
What are your goals? Hum, this is a tough one as I do not consider myself a runner. I have not done any type of formal running or training, and come to think of it I am not really sure how I even got roped into boot camp or the running club, but I am really happy to be involved in both. My goal is to try to get into shape and be healthy, I will keep you posted with my ongoing challenge.

Do you have a favorite running song? I do not listen to an ipod, but when I do listen to music I switch throughout the day – anything from LL Cool J, the Fugees, Bon Jovi, and Rod Stewart, up to Fergie.

Where's your favorite place to run? Aside from boot camp and an occasional run with the awesome RC3 chicks, the majority of my running comes from chasing after my ever so sweet 6 year old daughter Tiamarie (who goes by T or Tia).

Tell us a little about YOU. I have lived in Phoenix since 1973, whoa that is a really long time! I moved to the Desert Hills area in 1999 with my then fiancé and now husband Steve. We moved into a house we built a in 2004 at 7th St south of the Carefree Hwy in a little tucked away area with amazing views. Currently in our home resides a houseful of one’s—1 dad, 1 mom, 1 daughter, 1 dog, 1 cat and 1 fish – hopefully Noah’s Ark never comes calling… Aside from being a licensed real estate agent for the past 5 years, my husband and I own a business that sells artificial grass and putting greens—who knew there was so much to learn about synthetic grass. If anyone is interested you can visit our showroom and warehouse at Cave Creek Rd and the Loop 101 at 2720 E Mohawk Ln, or our websites at or

Favorite saying or inspiration. A while ago, someone quoted the following statement and I personally find it true for me; “To be happy you need 3 things; something to do, something to look forward to and someone to love”. I feel that if you have these things in life you’re doing pretty well.

I enjoy getting out of town with my family to Point Loma San Diego any chance I get. As a family we also like to Lake Pleasant a few dozen times a year, along with the ski slopes at Copper Mountain in Colorado.

Do you have a "mantra" that keeps you going? When I am trying to make it through the timed mile at boot camp I pull out a favorite saying from Dory (Finding Nemo, which was the first movie my daughter watched over and over and….) So instead of “just keep swimming” I say “just keep running” over and over, and somehow the run is over! Other than that my sister in law got me hooked on “good times” from a classic Saturday Night Live skit with Alec Baldwin. I am not really sure how inspiring these are, but this what I have up my sleeve!
