Women's Running

Get Fit Your Own Way

I may be an Olympic middle-distance runner, but I wasn’t born with a passion for running. What I did have right from the start was passion to move, to push myself, to feel the adrenaline. I always enjoyed being able to take on a challenge, and figure out ways to become better, to overcome weaknesses, and home in on my goals. Through this process I developed a hard-core passion for movement. I love how movement helps me carry on through my daily life with energy and pride. I love how movement also shows me that I am strong, I am resilient, and I have the tremendous ability to persevere and to overcome obstacles. I have the ability to take a challenge head-on, knowing it isn’t going to be easy, but knowing the hard-fought effort is worth it.
