Running Highlights: The biggest, most exciting marathon I've run was Boston, 2013.  Despite the post-race happenings, the pre-race and race itself was just awesome.  Despite being so big (well, compared with other races I've run), it was SO well organized.  Such a positive feeling throughout the race.  It didn't hurt that I ran faster than I thought I would and achieved a nice 3min PR:)

Favorite Training Method: For me, minimal miles and focused workouts are best for helping me get fitter and faster.   I like to run fast-ish long 1x/week, medium-tempo 1x/week, and hills or speedwork 1x/week, with  maybe an easy run thrown in there.  Other days I'm working on my core/flexibility/strength with focused, intense workouts for total-body fitness.

Favorite Training Song: Burn This Disco Down, Michael Jackson, 1979!

Noteable Awards: Most Valuable Synchronized Swimmer, 1996

Say something Jody! I'm so stoked to run with the Fleet Feet team.  In 2003, after a few failed attempts at completing training for the full Pig, I decided to take a chance and run with the Fleet Feet training group.  I was worried I'd be too slow or just not fit in.  I can't think of a better risk I've taken (maybe besides my marriage, and all:) ).  Because with those ties, I've made some of my best friends and learned invaluable knowledge about running, meeting new people, and pushing my limits.
