Carrie Wu: Race Ambassador
New for the 2019 Reebok 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 Boston-based fashion and lifestyle content creator and the mastermind behind the blog wordsofwu.com. I consider myself a #FitnessFanatic and work out practically every day of the week. My favorite workouts include running, barre and HITT. I am thrilled to be a Reebok Boston 10k for Women race ambassador!
What is your favorite distance for a race?
Absolutely the 10K
Do you have a special race-day ritual?
Wake up nice and early. Usually 2–3 hours before a race, stretch out my body and listen to my favorite pop playlist to get revved up to run. Then, right before I start the race, I take a race day selfie and save it as a memory.
What races are you running in 2019?
Marathon in October
If you could have dinner with one person, living or dead, who would it be?
Alecia Moore aka the female pop singer sensation P!nk. She’s such an amazingly talented vocalist, artist, athlete, performer and one of my favorite female role models and inspirations. P!nk is not afraid to speak her mind and stands up for what she believes in. She’s also a great influence to other young women and her two children. I’d like to ask her about the inspiration behind several of her songs and what it’s really like to be a famous performer. I also listen to P!nk when I run, because her lyrics give me the motivation to run faster.
