Running Start:

When my son was born, I had to find an exercise to do while he was sleeping. We bought a treadmill. The first time I ran outside for more than 1 mile, I had to keep chanting to myself "if my sister can run a marathon, I can run 10 minutes."


Last year at the Chicago marathon I met a 72 year old Canadian woman. This was her 95th marathon. That's hard core.

"I Run Because...":

It is the only time of day when I don't have to BE or DO anything for anyone. Its all my time.


Mountains or Ocean?:


Tea or Coffee?:

Neither. I'm caffeine free. Seltzer is my beverage of choice.

Early Bird or Night Owl?:

Both. It all has to get done.

Chocolate or Vanilla?:
