July was another big month for at least 2 of our RIFers that I know of…who ran a little 500K race across TN…so the standings could change next month! I hope John and George did some racing in July or they are going to be caught!

This month’s random drawing winner is RIF #72 Natalie Torres! We will be sending her a Gone For A Run sign. Don’t forget to submit your points/monthly miles next month for a chance to win! Anyone who submits races or miles or even to say they didn’t race/run because life got in the way is eligible for the drawing. We just want to hear what everyone is up to! We are nosy that way. ;)

Run It Fast Club Member Profile – Natalie Torres #72

This week’s Run It Fast – The Club profile is #72 Natalie Torres. Natalie and I have the same problem. We love to run but we have out of control hair that makes running interesting so I was happy to read about her solution to this “issue”. I always have fun seeing what gear other runners use, don’t you?

So let’s get to know Natalie:

INFO

Name: Natalie Torres
RIF #: 72
Twitter: @NattieRuns
Facebook: www.facebook.com/nattie1218
Blog: http://www.thismamacanrun.com/

STATS

Years running: 2

Favorite race distance: half-marathon

Favorite PR: Marine Corps Historic half 2:03:40

Favorite race: Historic Half

Favorite bling: RnR St. Pete’s [See photo at the top or check it out in the bling case for a close up look.]

Next race: The Naked Foot 5k

What makes you FEEL fast?: My Saucony Kinvara 2s make me feel fast. Since wearing them I have been able to improve my speed and overall pace.

FUN RUNNING QUESTIONS

What’s the most beautiful place that you’ve run? The Rock-n-Roll St. Petersburg Half Marathon is the most beautiful place that I have run. It was along the beach and so very peaceful.

Why do you race? I race because it makes me a better runner. When I race, I am only competing with myself. I like to be able to train and then see the results of all of my hard work.

What is the one piece of running gear you can’t leave the house without? I cannot leave the house without my Sparkly Soul headband. I have very thick curly hair and I need something that is going to keep it out of my face when I run.

What running moment are you most proud of? I am very proud of my first half-marathon. I ran the entire time even though I felt like I was going to die. I pushed through and finished strong.

If you can’t run, you’re ________? If I can’t run, I am either strength training or going to yoga.

***

We all have favorite gear that we use, whether it’s shoes to makes us feel “fast” or headbands to make the run more comfortable. What is the one thing you can’t leave the house without when you go for a run?

Thanks for sharing Natalie! I hope you run it fast at your next race!
