Fit Blogger We Love: Chic Runner

Written on March 17, 2011 at 3:35 pm , by

The first thing about Chic Runner’s blog that got our attention? The breathtaking views from her runs in Southern California. The second thing: Danica pretty much eats, breathes and sleeps running, with posts about race recaps, exercise gear reviews and pre- and post-workout meals. Here’s what this dedicated runner told us about her favorite fit things:

My favorite way to work out: I love running the most, but when training for a full marathon, I totally jump on the burn out bandwagon because it’s SO much training! When I’m not training for a full, I love the gym and doing yoga and pilates. Another new and fun thing that I’ve discovered I love is swimming. I don’t love the time it takes you to get ready after though.

On my fit life list: Alright, you’ve got me. I know I must run the New York Marathon once, and of course – the ultimate – Boston Marathon once. May be a few years, but I’ll get there. I want to do more interesting types of workouts too, kickboxing, karate, or martial arts.

My fave fit snack: I absolutely love avocado and low-fat cottage cheese! I would have never guessed they go together, but they are delicious and the perfect pair! I also love low-fat popsicles and pita with hummus.

Most embarrassing song I’ll admit I work out to: I know it’s so bad, but I LOVE The Lonely Island when I work out, and I catch myself giggling along to their songs.

My “I Did It” moment: Oddly enough I was training for my first half marathon, The Long Beach International City Bank Half Marathon, and it was the very first time I ever ran 10 miles. I have never had that feeling where I felt so accomplished. All day I kept repeating to myself, that I ran TEN whole miles! It was crazy to know I had run so far and it made me feel awesome about training and running.

My biggest motivator: I think my biggest motivation is seeing others and what they can push themselves to do. It makes me want to do the same thing. I do love working out because I enjoy it and it makes me feel great. After a hard workout at the gym or a fantastic run, nothing can wipe that glowing smile off my face!
