Why do you run?

I run to prove to myself that I can.  I am a dancer turned runner, and was always told that dancers couldn’t run, so for years I told myself that I couldn’t do it.  I started running as a way to prove to myself that I could train for and run my first half marathon.  Since then, I’ve become hooked, and continue to run as a way of keeping myself fit.

Favorite place to run:

Disney World and the beach

Running gear you can not live without:

My Mizuno Wave Inspire 10s.  I was fit for them last September and since I started running in them have come to love running that much more.

When not running where would we find you?

At school.  I’m a teacher and devote as much extra time as I can to helping my students achieve.

Favorite post race fuel:

Ice Cream

Song you want to hear at the finish line:

Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey
