Today’s Friday Featured Runner is Angela over at We Beat Fat.
Angela’s Running Journey


When I was on my journey to lose 200 pounds, I got tired of walking on the treadmill because it wasn’t fast enough.  I moved on to a jog and somehow I became a runner.  I started running in 2012 and my first race was a half marathon.  In total I’ve run 19 half marathons and 6 marathons. In May, I ran the Great Wall of China Marathon!
-What made me decide to become a runner? Walking on the treadmill just didn’t do it for me any more.  I felt the need for a little bit more speed.
-What is the longest distance I’ve ran? 31 miles in the Texas heat.
-What is your favorite post run fuel? Lowfat chocolate milk and a banana dog (aka a banana in a whole wheat hot dog bun with peanut butter)
-What song is currently being played on my playlist? The Spark by Afrojack.  It’s an inspiring song that always gives me the spark to keep pushing towards my goals.
-What would I tell someone who just started their journey? Take it slow and don’t compare yourself to anyone else.  Set your own goals and define your own victories.
