Where are you from? A small-ish town in Costa Rica called Quepos
How long have you lived in the area? A little over two years
Why do you run? So that I can eat chocolate… ha! I am a happier person when I run. It adds balance to my life, a great way to meet people, and some of the friendships I cherish the most I have made through running.
Why did you decide to join the Station Pub Run? I have a hard time running alone! Back in Costa Rica I ran with a group called “P’alante!” twice a week to help keep me motivated. When I moved to the area, I tried the Mon-Wed FF pub runs where I met Agustín, who told me about the Station PubRun.
What is your favorite thing about the Station Pub Run? The punch card. And the people, of course. 🙂
Describe the most recent (appropriate 🙂 ) photo you took with your phone: Last night, with “Amigas en Salud” at the Seymour Center. Just a picture of our weekly Zumba to share on our Facebook page.
What is something you have done recently, or are about to do, that you are proud of? I revised and resubmitted a research paper about unhealthy food marketing to children in Costa Rica, that might get published (fingers crossed!). Oh, and my first 50 km race coming up in 1 week!
Anything else you’d like to share with us?! I don’t really enjoy beer, so I feel a little silly when I wear our Station Pub Run shirt! Lol
