We’re excited to start introducing you to our Runnerbox Ambassadors! They’re all dedicated to a healthy, running lifestyle and love Runnerbox. We think that’s pretty awesome. We’ll be introducing to a new Ambassador each day. And don’t forget: you can meet them again at our twitter party tomorrow night!
Today, meet Ambassador Carlee!
Carlee, 29 from Oceanside, CA (still considers Michigan “home”)
Tell us a little about your running history:
I started running about a year and a half ago (started out walking a mile or two on my lunch break, worked into going to the office gym, and finally began running outside, pounding the payment). Originally it was because my hubby had different hobbies (surfing, motorcycle, art) and I didn’t really have anything I could call my own. I decided to sign up for the 2012 Disneyland Half Marathon – that way I had something to work towards, and even if the running wasn’t the best, at least I would be in Disneyland. Thankfully the running was GREAT and I have stuck with it ever since.
What’s your favorite race distance?
My fav currently is the Half Marathon. I feel like the training is still manageable, the distance is still a challenge, and you still seem pretty “B.A.” for tackling the race!
Do you have a bucket list race?
I would LOVE to do the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in San Francisco. The city is beautiful, the weather is amazing, and you earn an AWESOME necklace to commemorate the event -I would wear it daily!
Sum up your running philosophy in three words:
HAVE A BLAST! (My hubby and I are constantly signing up for ‘fun runs’ to remind us why we got into running in the first place – to have a great time, get active, and be healthy)
So tell us a little bit about…us. Why do you love Runnerbox?
THEY ARE A MICHIGAN BASED COMPANY! I was born and raised in Michigan. I LOVE supporting local (my dad has instilled this into me since I was a lil’ girl). And I LOVE what this company is doing! RunnerBox ROCKS!
