Running Love: As a college cheerleader, I used to have nightmares about running the timed mile. I’d finish my fourth lap around the track and lie breathless for a long time, grateful that I didn’t have to do that again for another year. After graduating, I started working long hours in a finance job. I started running as a way to distract myself from the stresses of stocks and bonds and quickly became addicted! Now I run to clear my mind, to catch up with friends, and to explore a new city. Not to mention, it’s pretty nice to be able to eat all the ice cream that I want

What does representing On mean to you? It’s such an honor to be representing On. Before I started running in Ons, I was constantly battling injuries. I was in a terrible cycle where I would start running well and then get sidelined for a few months and have to start my training all over again. I was actually at a triathlon store buying a road bike (since I couldn’t run as much) and the salesman was wearing the Cloudsurfer and recommended that I give them a try. Ever since, I have been running injury free and faster than ever! Ons completely saved my relationship with running. When I’m wearing my Ons, I feel unstoppable – it’s like I’m running on clouds! By representing On, I hope to spread the word so that other runners can feel unstoppable too!
Favorite distance to run? My favorite distance to run is the half marathon. I like running at a pace that is just below breathless. I feel like it’s the perfect distance to really push my limits. I also like that it’s a long enough distance to feel like I trained for something and accomplished something great, but not so long that it is all-consuming.
