When and why did you start running?
I’ve been running my whole life; I don’t even remember when I started. It was just something I was good at. I’m more of a sprinter and short distance runner, so I run to be fast, and I run because I love it. It’s just my legs and me on the road.
What is your favorite race and race distance?
I don’t have a favorite race; in general I love 5Ks so any 5K race.
What is your race day routine?
Stretch, stretch, stretch! And I obsessively tie my shoelaces again and again.
What is your most favorite piece of running gear?
Does the iPod count? I enjoy running to beats and picking up the pace as songs pick up.
Do you follow any diet or take any specific supplements that complement your running?
I have a whey protein shake after every run and workout.
What do you wish you’d known when you first started running?
I wish I’d known about the pain that comes with running. I’ve had a couple foot and knee problems over the years, however, I don’t think knowing about it would have stopped me from running.
What is your fondest running memory?
When I was in high school, I played field hockey. During our fitness test, I was paired to run with (race against) the goalie who was much taller and had longer legs than me. We ran 200m. I think she and I were head to head for a second, then I took off and finished seconds ahead of her. Everyone including the goalie was surprised, but I knew I had it in me. “And though she be but little, she is fierce.”
What is one thing that most people do not know about you?
I’m adopted. :-)
