When I started running: Age 37
Why I run: Running….it is about boosting my mood and finding inspiration. Also I feel like it is a great influence for my girls to show them how to stick to a plan and succeed. It is easy to bring my sport with me and do any day, any time & anywhere. When you want it to be it is a social sport, running with friends and in groups. And other times it can be just my time.
Favorite local race: Cherry Blossom 10 miler.
How I stay motivated: Having a race to look forward to and my wonderful running groups.
Most memorable running moment: Crossing the finish line at the Philly Half Marathon and having my family travel to the race with me. Also, running with my daughters. I just ran the Jolly Fat Man race with one of my girls and loved every moment of that run with her.
Future goals/race plans: Starting another half marathon training program in January. Planning to run my favorite race again, the Cherry Blossom 10 miler.
Advice for new runners: Stick to it. It is hard to get started but once you do, it is hard to stop. Ok, I saw that quote somewhere, but it is so true!
