Kristen

Name: Kristen

Location: Bluff City, TN

Sport of Choice: Running

2013 Race Plans: Myrtle Beach Marathon, Knoxville Half, Nike Women’s Half, Varmit Half, Bluegrass Half, Haunted Half…and any other 5k-who knows maybe another marathon that I can manage to get to.

What makes you a Tough Chik: Determination. I do not have it in me to quit anything. All odds can be stacked against me and somehow I manage to pull through and finish (sometimes even with tears).

If you had a super power, what would it be? teleportation…I mean who doesn’t want to just say where they need to be and BAM you are right there.

Fun Fact: When I laugh I snort

Lisa

Name: Lisa

Location: Fort Collins, Colorado

Sport of Choice: Running

2013 Race Plans: Boston Marathon 4/15/2013; Colorado Marathon 5/5/2013; Pikes Peak Marathon (tentatively) August 2013

What makes you a Tough Chik: I didn’t start running (or regular fitness) until I was 40 years old. Age has never been an excuse for me.  In fact, I get better every year!  I ran a 50K ultra trail race on my 45th birthday! I am a mother of two and have run 7 marathons and 20 half marathons in 4+ years

If you had a super power, what would it be? I would love to be in two places at once. There is so much I want to do and never seem to have the time.

Fun Fact: I met my husband in college in 1987. We lost touch later that year when he graduated. In 2001 in Brazil during Carnivale, we met again, solidifying our belief in destiny.
