Shonny Vanlandingham readying for what might be one of her most significant races of the season. On 23 May, Shonny will be in her home state of Texas competing in the XTERRA US Pro Series- South Central Championship. Aside from being the local FAVE who played basketball at East Texas State U, Shonny is just coming off victory in the first Pro Series event, so other Phenoms like three time XTERRA World Champion, Melanie McQuaid will be hot on her heels. No pressure, Shonny!
Shonny appears in a P.S. AD currently featured in Hawaii Sport Magazine.
