FROM: Columbus

OCCUPATION: Full-time grandmother to Hayden, 3

WHY I RUN: I was huffing and puffing going up a set of stairs a few years ago and realized it was time to make a change. I didn’t want to buy a costly gym membership, and I figured my dog could use a good workout, too. We fell in love with our runs through the parks here in town and in Indianapolis. I completed my first 5K in April, and I’m challenging myself to train for the Mill Race Half-Marathon.

FAVORITE SONG TO RUN TO: “Viva la Vida” by Coldplay

SHOES: Nike Free Flyknit 4.0
