Hello! My name is Samaria and I am a member of BGR-Warner Robins, Georgia. Although I am not yet a runner, I do actively particpate (when I can) in Virtual Runs and actual physical 5Ks. I joined SP because I needed something to help get me active as well as a way to help get me healthier.

Running Code Name: Cousin SloPoke
Running Level: Beginner
Favorite post workout food: Right now, water.

Why do you like to run? As of now, I am not a runner but I like to walk/run because it gives me time to think and reflect. It also gives me the opportunity to have time to myself -- my "me time". Not to mention, I've always had the reoccuring dream about me and my Rottewieler jogging....Nope, I dont jog nor do I own a pet lol!!

My inspiration: All runners!!

Most difficult: Trying to learn how to breathe and run at the same time lol!
