FUN RUNNING QUESTIONS

Why did you start running?
I first started running to lose weight, after losing 20 lbs I was addicted to running.

Who inspires your running and why?
Everyone on the RIF team, Instagram and Twitter friends. I am always inspired when I see someone post a new PR, new long distance achievement or a favorite running spot.

What’s the most beautiful place that you’ve run?
It would be running on the Oahu Island.

What is your favorite go-to pre-race meal?
Chicken pasta alfredo.

Why do you race?
I like the overall aspect of preparing for a, pushing your body to the limits on race day. I also like to collect race bibs.

What is the one piece of running gear you can’t leave the house without?
iPhone

What running moment are you most proud of?
It would have to be completing the Dallas Marathon relay last year with 4 friends. Last year I was training to run the marathon but got injured three months before race date. I had to cancel my plans on running the marathon.  I did convince four friends to do the marathon relay with me instead. Most of them were not runners but accepted the challenge. We trained hard and completed the marathon relay in 4:20.

I absolutely love the photos that Alex shared with us. The photo of him with his family is awesome! The family that runs together…obviously has fun together. :) The photo from the Dallas Marathon is another great example of how Alex is not only encouraging his family to run but his friends as well. And don’t you think the Must Dash photo is great? :) We think Alex is inspiring and a great addition to the Run It Fast Club. We can’t wait to see what he accomplishes in the coming months!

Thank you for sharing with us Alex! Rock the Dallas Cowboys 5K and Run It Fast!
