What would you recommend to others who want to be fit and healthy?

Do what makes you feel good first! I have a passion for sports and basic self care. Finding a passion is key. Setting goals forces you to prepare for the end game. Start small and focus on little changes. If you are not passionate about what you do, nothing will change. Love the work. Fitness and health is a lifestyle change. Change is hard. Pick avenues that produce a release and maintain a smile, the rest will come.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

I'm a 42 year old mother of two boys. Iam a Supervisor at CPS, which is high stress. I use sports as my outlet, and keeps me from burnout in a high stress job. I encourage my social workers to focus on their self care. I was a distance runner and gymnast in high school. I continued to run after high school competed in almost 15 half marathons and 10 marathons. I qualified for the Boston Marathon, and ran that prestigious race in 2015. I have competed in RAGNAR relays and SPARTAN Races.

If you were the next Ms Health and Fitness, what would you do with $20,000?

I would like to look at a degree in nutrition. Really interested in starting a meal prep business in my small town, which has nothing like that locally.
