Rail Trail Chicks: Stacy

This week, my featured Rail Trail Chick is Stacy.  Stacy is my bestest friend, ever.  I really could go on and on about Stacy, but I'd take away from from her post today!  I will share this one picture of the two of us pregnant (just over three years ago) with our daughters.

Name: Stacy

KRRT 1/2 Marathon June 2011


Who/what inspires you to run?
I was always one of those people who gawked at runners on the side of the road wishing I could be one of them.  When Jen started running I was motivated even more.  It took me a while, but she finally convinced me that I could do it.  So, she was my real inspiration.  Now I am continually inspired to keep running by my children.  I love hearing them cheer for me at races and pretending to be runners themselves.

What is your best training tip?
Running with others has really helped me to keep training.  I have two fabulous groups of women I run with all week long.  It helps keep me honest.

What is your favorite post run indulgence?
A LONG shower and a great cup of coffee.

2012 Race Plans:
I am going to train for my first marathon...yikes!  I know I can do it with the right training though, and my fellow chicks will help me through.

Favorite Distance to Run:
I haven't really found a distance that I truly love.  I still feel like a newbie in the running club because I am just wrapping up with year number two.  I'm still trying to find my race pace and not get so overwhelmed at the beginning of a race.
