I just ran my first 5k last weekend. I SOOO have the competition bug now! I immediately signed up for another the first of June, one that's a little more serious, timed, and with prizes for the first 3 in each age group. I'm super excited!

My only running injury has been bursitis in my hip, due to overuse. It is feeling better now after PT, and now I have to run every other day so it doesn't flare up again.

What running injuries have you had so far, if any?

A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.

I realized I had the competition bug after I ran my first 5K, and to my surprise almost placed, after realizing I possessed the ability to place, that became my goal! I never thought of running as a competitive sport until then.

When is your next race?

What first peaked my interest in running or even competing in a 5k was the fact I was already walking around 3.1 miles a day sometimes in 2009 and a 5k is about that long. I wanted to prove to myself and people who knew me that I can do it.
When did you first realize that maybe you had the competition bug in your blood for competing in any type of walk or run? ps if you tell me I will tell you

Right now my favorite running gear is the Nike shorts I gifted myself for taking the first step and joining SP. They are SO comfortable.


What first peaked (know that's wrong; sorry) your interest in running?

“You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired.”

- George S. Patton, U.S. Army General, 1912 Olympian
This is my favorite quote EVER!

"I'm strong" or I visualize myself doing something harder. Like pretending the last mile of a 6 miler is mile 24 of a marathon - weird, huh?

What's the point, I'll only get sweaty and need another shower.

My favorite podcast is Tariq Nasheed Macklessons Radio. He gives awesome advice to men and women about relationships. His advice does not cut corners because he is very real and tells you the absolute truth.

Should a person shower before working out?

My favorite car (right now) is the Honda Fit, which I should have bought instead of my Yaris...

No, just two cats!

If you could run any race distance, what would it be?

I don't win races, but I always cross the finish line. I'm not fast, but I try my best to become faster. I don't have sports endorsements or earn a paycheck, but that doesn't stop me from running. My pace does not define me. Just because "professional" does not precede "athlete" in describing me doesn't make my running any less valuable. I am an everyday athlete; leading a normal life, but with big goals and dreams.
I am an athlete. I am a runner. (runzoerun.com)

If I had $50 dollars to spend in a running store I would buy a new running shirt. I feel like you can never have enough shirts.
