Blogger On The Run: The Wannabe Athlete

We’re excited to share this week’s Women’s Running magazine Blogger On The Run- Callie from The Wannabe Athlete! Besides being a working mom (to the mini-athlete as she affectionately refers to him), Callie inspires us to keep running, even when times are busy! Check out what she recently shared with us:

WR: How would you describe yourself?

C: I have always wanted to be a “runner”, but considered myself too slow or unathletic for that title. Then my husband said to me, “All it takes to be a runner is to RUN.” And he was right. Those words were life changing for me. I started to believe in myself as a runner and began to push myself to run a little bit farther and a little bit faster than I did before.

Callie gleans inspiration from being a healthy role model for her "mini-athlete!"

WR: What keeps you running and training?

C: My motivation comes from wanting to stay fit and healthy. I know if I slack off, I’ll lose all the progress I’ve made!

WR: What type of run is your favorite? 

C: Long run – especially with a good friend.

In addition to running, Callie sometimes competes in triathlons!

WR: What’s your favorite pre-race meal?

C: A bagel with peanut butter and banana.

WR: How do you reward yourself for accomplishing your training/running goals?

C: I blog about it.
