Colleen Kelly Alexander discusses the accident that changed her life and how she has rebounded in spite of the trauma to her mind and body.
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. 🙂
