Name: Kristen Smith
When and why did you start running?
I began running in January 2012 after the birth of my second child to get rid of 50+ pounds of baby weight!
What is your favorite race and race distance?
I think my favorite race so far has been the Disneyland Half Marathon; I definitely prefer the half marathon distance!
What is your race day routine?
I wake up and grab my usual cup of coffee. I set my clothes out the night before so I begin to get dressed and will munch on a Honey Stinger waffle or multigrain waffle with peanut butter while doing that. And lastly I’ll take my Energybits before heading out the door!
What is your most favorite piece of running gear?
I have to say I am obsessed with my Sparkle Skirts and my Sparkle Bottoms. I have serious chaffing issues (who doesn't!) and these shorts do NOT move – I have worn others that claim they won’t move and do but these really don’t.
Do you follow any diet or take any specific supplements that complement your running?
I take Energybits before my runs – 100% pure spirolina algae!
What do you wish you’d known when you first started running?
How much it would cost!!! LOL. They say running is cheap…that’s a lie! But I love it and wouldn't trade it for anything!
What is your fondest running memory?
Finishing my first marathon.
What is one thing that most people do not know about you?
I used to be a Jazzercise instructor (true story!!)
