Running Rockstar - Ali

I regularly scower the internet, read my favourite blogs, Pin quotes and motivating images, read books, articles, and magazines all to keep me focused and inspired. It is hard to wake up early in the AM to squeeze in a workout. And sometimes it feels like there are simply not enough hours in the day to get it all done.

So Friday is a day to celebrate our accomplishments. These are my Running Rockstars. They are from all walks of life and are all at different stages in their running experience. But the one thing that they all have in common is that despite it all they are getting it done! They are Rockin' that Run! And that deserves to be celebrated!

One of the these AMAZING folks will be featured here each week. Answering some of my favourite Run related question.

This week's Rockstar is Ali Jones from

1. What is the next race on your calendar?
Next Race - NWM DC 1/2  Marathon- April 28th

2. Share your Never-Forget Running/Racing Moment?
Never forget moment - my never forget moment was running through Angels Stadium during my first half marathon last year, Disneyland Half. It was amazing having people cheering for you as you neared the finish, and seeing yourself on the big screen. I've been hooked on half marathons since!

3. Running Must-Have?
KT Tape. I primarily use it for my IT band, but when I ran Goofy Challenge this past January and started experiencing pain in my foot after the half. I taped it up with KT Tape, and ran pain free during the marathon.

4. What is your favourite Pre-Race Fuel?
I keep it simple; an everything bagel and black coffee

5. Share your Running Mantra or Racing Ritual?
Just keep going

Way to Rock it Ali!
Love your Favourite Darwinian Fail,
