Name: Valerie

Sport of Choice: Running

Hobbies: Reading, spending time w/my family, watching my kids sports

2012 Race Plans: March – Shamrock 1/2 in VA Beach, May – Marine Corps 1/2

What makes you a Tough Chik: The fact that I can find time these days to run and train. I work full-time as a PE Teacher and have a 13 and 10 year old. They swim and play basketball. I am their full-time driver! Also, I just ran the Disney 1/2. I pulled up at mile 10 with horrible IT band pain. I ran like a peg leg for the last 3 miles because I couldn’t bend my right knee. I am so proud of myself for pushing through the pain and finishing.

What make you a Tough Chik: To me a TOUGH CHIK is defined by a couple of rules my granddaughter and I call the “Princess Rules”.  1. KIND  2. POLITE  3. TOUGH AS NAILS!
