What prompted you to join Gazelles and when did you join?
I joined the Gazelles very recently (in April) but have wanted to train with Gilbert for a long time. I decided to train for my first marathon and that gave me a good enough reason to commit to joining the group.
Which group do you run with?
What's your favorite workout and why?
I've only done a few so far, and I've appreciated all the workouts. The most impactful for me was the circuit workout—I was sooo sore afterward! It made me realize how much I need to focus on overall strength-building to become the runner I want to be, not just running for every workout.
How has Gazelles changed your running/life?
It's brought joy back to my running. It has already made me stronger and faster. And, I feel embraced by a community of inspiring, kind and hilarious people at a time when I really needed that in my life. Also, Gilbert corrected my running form on my first day and it's almost totally cleared up knee pain that I had been struggling with for years. We can all agree Gilbert is magical, right?
What’s your favorite Gilbert-ism or best story about him?
Run with Joy!
