New for the 2019 Boston 10K for Women, we are pleased to introduce you to a group of fun, strong, creative, and powerful women that you should know. They are our Official Race Ambassadors!
I’m a slightly clumsy, uncoordinated sports reporter by trade who loves to run. Running makes me feel like an athlete; despite the fact I’m missing key hand-eye coordination. 🙂
What is your favorite distance to race?
The half-marathon. It’s the perfect mix of distance and speed. But I can’t stay away from 26.2!
What is your favorite post-race meal?
Tacos, chips, salsa, guac, margarita.
What do you believe in?
I believe in the power of sharing our stories. When we tell the truth (good and bad) about who we are, we can touch people in amazing and unexpected ways.
Do you have any advice for first time runners?
It’s OK to run your pace. We are a competitive society, but running is about being your best self. You don’t need to win the race or beat your best friend. You just have to run.
What’s the best training advice you have ever received?
Don’t make all of your long runs easy. Pushing the pace 10–22 has helped me lose less speed as I get older.
What’s the best race-day advice you’ve ever received?
Don’t do, wear, or eat ANYTHING new.
