- How did you become part of MYB?
I think I first saw the now iconic shirt advertised through Twitter about 2 years ago & immediately fell in love with it. I knew I had to have one! I met Robin at the Crescent City Classic Expo in 2015, picked up a shirt there, and then began to stalk MYB through social media after that.
- Why did you start walking/running?
I started running 10 years ago as a way to manage stress and drop a few pounds while planning my upcoming wedding. I ran my first race ever, the Chicago Half Marathon, in 2006 and immediately became hooked after I crossed that finish line. I wanted more! More races! More race medals! More post race beers! :) I'm heading back to the Chicago Half Marathon this year to celebrate my 10 year runniversary!
- What is your favorite post race/cheat meal?
OMG, I LOVE to go eat Mexican food after a hard race. Chips and salsa and queso and a cold, cold, Modelo Especial.
- If you could have one super power, what would it be & why?
Oh wow, that's tough. As a runner I would definitely say super speed!
- If you could run with any celebrity, who would you choose?
I would have to say Alysia Montaño. I LOVE that she competed at the national championships at 34 weeks pregnant!! I really think she's done a lot for women's running showing that women can indeed still run, and even compete while pregnant. She's been an inspiration for me. I was heartbroken at her fall during the 800m final at the U.S. Olympic Trials but I know she will come back with a vengeance. She is a beast! Plus, she has amazing style and is super approachable on Twitter. I just love her.
