Theodora of Losing Weight in the City will be hitting the road, alongside a few FITNESS staffers, for the ING New York City Marathon in just 10 days! After months of dedicated training, we can’t wait to watch as this social media star conquers yet another race with style. We asked Theodora about the music that keeps her moving and her favorite medal-worthy moment.
My favorite way to work out: Running. I’ve so far run seven half-marathons, one full marathon and am training for my second—NYC! I love the way I can totally zone out or sweat out my frustrations through a good run.
Most embarrassing song I’ll admit I work out to: I guess “Party in the U.S.A.” by Miley Cyrus should qualify as most embarrassing, huh?
My fave fit snack: I’m pretty addicted to sunflower butter on a whole-wheat English muffin with either bananas or strawberries. Or just bananas.
My biggest indulgence: I don’t have too bad a sweet tooth, so I always save my calories for beer. There’s nothing like a cold beer after a hard race.
My “I Did It” moment: After losing 50 pounds, I nearly cried when I crossed the finish line of the Chicago Marathon. It was 85 degrees and humid, and there were people passing out all over the place, but I pushed through and finished. I never dreamed I’d be able to complete a marathon!
