“Running allows my mind to relax before the stress of the day begins.”

Why I love to run: I prefer to run early in the morning before anyone is out. I find it peaceful to see the sun coming up and enjoy the calmness of having the road to myself.  

Favorite place to run around Charlotte: The trails at Colonel Francis Beatty Park in Matthews are great. The park offers road running, dirt trails and gravel roads all in one place.

Favorite race: My favorite race was the Ironman Chattanooga, because it was such a challenge. I just moved from Nashville to Matthews so I’m excited for my first big local race. I’m going to be joining the 26.Brew/13.Run training team to run in the Charlotte Marathon.

Favorite running tip: I always take time to learn where bathrooms are when running, especially before a new route or race. I also apply lubricant to my nipples to avoid chaffing, it’s a lesson I learned the hard way!

My PUMP up running song: Danza Kuduro by Don Omar. Try it on your next run, trust me.
