One runner shares her long history with ultrarunning and explains how the sport helped her heal from a major surgical mistake.
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.
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.
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. 🙂
