Why do you run Spartan Races? They helped us with our event, the MLK Day 5k in Atlanta (Jan 16.) and I wanted to come help support their race. (My boyfriend made me) was scratched out.
How do you train for Spartan Races? I do Peachtree Road Boot Camp 5 days a week.
Quick Bio & Interesting Facts: Grew up in New Smyrna Beach, FL. Love the beach, somehow ended up in Atlanta, though, and picked up running. When I get tired and discouraged in a race I think of my mom who passed away 5 years ago and had an unbreakable spirit despite a lifetime of medical maladies.
Shout Outs: My boyfriend, Chip Owens, who encourage me despite telling me I’m untrainable and Dan Luzzi who helped us set up the MLK Day 5k. Come do it Jan 16th, 2013 in Atlanta.
