“Aesthetics are nice but it’s really about functional things, so I can do things in my life, be healthy, and not get injured.”
"Before weight training, I was definitely a food counter. Some health issues run in my family and I’ve put on some pounds in my day, but I didn’t want to let myself go down that path. In chiropractic school, one of my roommates said she was going to run two miles before class everyday. So I said, ‘I’ll do that with you.’ and that’s how I started running.
I started to get into weight training when I signed up for my first marathon because I knew in order to finish 26 miles strong, I’d need a strong core. Weight training also helped me get out of counting my food. Since I was trying to building muscle, I just naturally ate. Most people who meet me now say, “Oh, you’re so thin,” and I tell them it’s because I worked for it. There were many mornings that I was up at 4:00 A.M. to run 20 miles before I went to work at 9:00 A.M. So, it didn’t come without hard work.
I plan to be fit for life. I want to be able to move if I have kids. I want to be 80 years old and get myself off the toilet. I say this to so many people, you squat so that you can get off the toilet when you’re 80. Yeah, aesthetics are nice but it’s really about functional things, so I can do things in my life, be healthy, and not get injured."
