I started running... March 13, 2008, I was 100 lbs overweight and desperate to lose weight so I got off my fat butt and began to run.

When I am not running... I enjoy going to the beach, listening to music, watching the Family Guy and doing yoga.

One time I was on a long run.. near Soldier Field in Chicago and I got lost. I started to cry because it began to rain. It was these two creepy guys fishing, they guided me to the lakefront path.

I choose to run without... make-up. This is very hard, I have terrible eyebrows that always need to be filled in.

The question I am asked the most about running is... "Why Do I do it so much?" My response, "I don't do it enough, I am just at 25 miles a week, my goal 35."

Running is... orgasmic to me, it makes my body feel sooooo good. I fall in love every time I do it.

When I am on the road... I look for the first sidewalk, road or dirt trail I see so I can go for a run.

I wish other runners would not... slow down to take pictures that irks me. At least move over.

If I could run three miles with someone famous... I would choose Will Smith.

I am running my first marathon, CHICAGO, this fall, I am running with the Chicago Police Fund, please click here to donate.
