Favorite Quote:

PR or ER!    OK, I’m not that hardcore.  I like “Strive for Progress, Not Perfection.”

Why do you run?

Do I have to limit it to one reason? ;)  Stress relief, staying fit and active, weight management, to challenge myself, as an activity I can do together with my husband, and more!

Favorite place to run:

Well, my favorite place I’ve EVER run was in Hawaii, but that was only on vacation!  At home, I like running on the roads around the less busy parts of town – especially in the fall when the foliage is gorgeous up here.

Running gear you can not live without:

Sneakers!  I’m pretty low key and don’t have much fancy stuff.  For longer races, I love my fuel belt.

When not running where would we find you?

On a typical day, I might be leading a corporate running group or presenting a wellness seminar, teaching nutrition classes through a grant in an elementary school, working on the blog, and cooking up some delicious meals in the kitchen.

Favorite post race fuel:

Chocolate PB&B smoothie:  frozen banana slices, skim milk, peanut butter, and dark chocolate chips.  Blend and enjoy!

Song you want to hear at the finish line:

Nelly – Heart of a Champion.
