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 Kristen from

1. What is the next race on your calendar?
The Freedom Run 5k over Memorial Day weekend though I hope to do 1 or 2 before then.

2. Share your Never-Forget Running/Racing Moment?
Crossing the finish line at my first 1/2 marathon last fall. It was both a mental and physical challenge for me. I am not a distance runner by any means but I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. The course was nearly all hills. I wanted to quit at mile 10. My legs felt like lead. Though it was brutal, I'm glad I accomplished my goal.

3. Running Must-Have?
Music. Just can't do it without my beats.

4. What is your favourite Pre-Race Fuel?
Oatmeal with peanut butter and sometimes with a banana

5. Share your Running Mantra or Racing Ritual?
#BeUnstoppable because quitting is not an option. I like to give myself pep talks along the way. You have to get inside your own head to find the strength you need to keep on keeping on.

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