Name: Regina Faura
When and why did you start running? I quit drinking alcohol in 2010 and realized I had gained over 40lbs. I decided to try the Couch to 5k in November 2010 and have not stopped since.
What is your favorite race and race distance? I have only been running races for about a year so I don’t have a favorite race but the 10k is my favorite distance now.
What is your race day routine? I get up early enough to get dressed, have a cup of coffee and head to the race.
What is your most favorite piece of running gear? Right now it is my Amphiphod handheld water bottle.
Do you follow any diet or take any specific supplements that complement your running? I do not diet or take supplements. I made a lifestyle change in my eating habits 2 years ago and continue to eat that way now.
What do you wish you’d known when you first started running? How good it was going to make me feel and I would have started a lot sooner!
What is your fondest running memory? Running my first 5k and wanting to sign up for another race right away.
What is one thing that most people do not know about you? Sometimes I snort when I laugh!
Here are all the different ways you can connect with Regina!
Thanks so much for sharing with us Regina!
