Why did you start running?

I was looking for an activity to help me lose weight when I came across the book, Born to Run. It inspired me and I've been running ever since.

How long have you been running?

2 years.

What is your favorite thing about running?

Downhills. Feels like flying.

What are your goals?

I don't really have any. I still have some weight to lose, but I run because I enjoy it.

What is your favorite race?

I've only been in a few. I guess the Knoxville Marathon. It was fun. Traing for a trail ultra now. I'm falling in love with the trails.

What are your current running shoes?

I'm barefoot when I'm on concrete and it's not freezing, but when I wear shoes it's usually my Luna sandals.

What would you tell someone who's hesitant to start running?

It's not as hard as you think. Give it a try. Start our short and easy and work your way up.
