Where is your favorite place to run in New York?
There’s not really one place, but my favorite run is the 5 Bridges: Brooklyn, Manhattan, Williamsburg, Pulaski and Queensboro. One day, I want to add on the 102nd Street Footbridge to Randall’s Island and the Triboro Bridge. If I had to pick one place, I do like the Prospect Park loop!
What is your favorite NYRR race?
Grete’s Great Gallop is my fav—I love the half-marathon distance, I love doing the two loops of Central Park, and I love that it honors marathoner and badass Grete Waitz.
What is your personal running motto?
“Stronger Than Excuses” is one I like.
Personal Best Times:
Nah, I’m not fast per se. I just like to finish and stay healthy. I have done five marathons (my first five) in the span of a year and I’m on the road to 52 races in 2016…I think that’s something.
