What prompted you to join Gazelles and when did you join?
In 2009 or 2010 (I can't remember), my friend and I were running with a group that trained with a former Gazelle. When we wanted to train for a full marathon, he felt that Gilbert's Gazelles would be a better group to train with because of the support you get from the whole group. I was so nervous. The Gazelles??? They are so fast, I won't be able to keep up. I run like molasses on a cold day in Maine. Gilbert was very nice and supportive when we met him. So, I joined up and started training for my first marathon. I haven't stopped since.
Which group do you run with?
I run with the groovy Monday/Wednesday 5:30 am group.
What's your favorite workout and why?
I really enjoy any of the track workouts. I love to do the fast running with a rest in between.
How has Gazelles changed your running/life?
I tell people that the quality of my friends has improved since I started running with the Gazelles. Everyone is so kind, supportive, smart and funny.
What’s your favorite Gilbert-ism or best story about him?
I loved it when Gilbert would say “eat the cookie, drop the cookie,” because I just love cookies and can't imagine dropping a cookie by choice.
