Where did your passion for running come from?
I started running very occasionally about five years ago, and I realized how much I like you to put on tennis and run anywhere and anytime.
A few years ago, I went through a very difficult period in my life, and I think this work has saved me in a way. My first marathon didn't go through a lot of training and four friends, so I didn't stop, which has become my own treatment, I ran singing, laughing and crying. There's no sense of breaking your own boundaries
Tell us about project 261 and how it came about
261 appears in a real group of friends, a friendship that begins with exercise and strengthens over time. In many areas of life, as we grow up, a group of women with similar ideas support each other in running, exercising, working and living.
261 names were inspired by Katherine Switzer, the first woman to run the Boston Marathon, who broke the barriers and was one of the many women who inspired us
What advice would you give to beginners who want to start running?
It's best to set a goal, start with a 5K or 10K, and train for it, because if you don't have a goal, you're likely to give up.
Running is not easy, on the contrary, but it is worth it. Every wrong thing, injury, tear, baton, hug, fall, obstacle, pain, end point, learning and every part of the process is absolutely worth it.
What did you notice when you chose the spring gun?
Function and design, for me, the perfect sneaker is a very good balance between support and lightness. I just tried the new off-line white x Nike zoo earth Kig 5, which I love because the design balances high performance with new technology.
What do you like best about project 261?
For me, the brotherhood generated by this movement is of the utmost importance, and while this project is running, it goes beyond empowering women and everything we can do together.
What are the plans for 261?
JL: the idea is to build an open women's group, 261's intention is to inspire and inspire us. Running is a good starting point, we can unite and break the barriers.
What's your greatest achievement as an agent? What's your next step?
My biggest achievement was breaking two hours in the Brooklyn marathon, which was said to be easy, but I spent more than a year preparing and trying to break my biggest obstacle: physical and mental.
The best break in these two hours was when I was 200 meters away from the goal and I couldn't stand it any more Three of my 261 year old crew's best friends were on the other side of the fence, and they started running about 10 meters with me, between the sea of people and me, between emotional tears, accelerating what I could do and ending them.
Katherine Switzer once said that if you've lost faith in humanity, you should go see a marathon, I couldn't agree more. I don't have my next clear goal yet, all I know is that for this reason and many more, I'm never going to stop running.
