Ladies we Love: The one with Robin

Alright y'all, we know it's been a while, but we wanted to bring back our Ladies we Love series! First up for this go round is our top brand ambassador and running extraordinaire Robin @runrobinrun1 on the gram :)

We sent her our list of questions to answer so you can all get to know her a little better.

1. Okay, first things first! Please tell us how you got into running.

My dad is a runner, so he's the reason why I started! 

2. What marathons have you ran? Which one is your greatest accomplishment?

-NYC Marathon, Chicago Marathon, Mesa Marathon, Indianapolis Marathon, Dallas Marathon 4x, Fort Worth Marathon. Indy is my greatest accomplishment since I qualified for the Boston Marathon.                                                                             

3. How do you balance being a mom to two boys, a running hobby, and a full time job? Great question. It's not easy. Still trying to figure out how to balance it all perfectly. Family, running and work are priorities so I've had to let go of some things to make time for these three things that spark the most joy in my life. Also, I've learned how to ask for help more because it's impossible to do all of this on my own. 

4. What goes into training for a triathlon? What foods were you able to eat before and after?  Training looks different for everyone depending on their goal and time they have to commit to training. Thankfully, I have a coach that tells me what to do and when to do my workouts. Nutrition is so different for everyone, too. Depending on the type of work out I'm doing and the duration of it, that factors into what I'll eat before and after. A combo of high carbs, some protein and low fiber food usually works best for me.                                             

5. What music are you listening to right now? Or what do you listen to when you are training?

Usher, EDM music and Muse.                   

6. What is your most favorite trend of Winter? Least favorite?

I'm digging the matching sweatsuits. Reminds me of my granny. She lived in matching sweatsuits. 

7. What do you hope trends for Spring look like?

Comfy, neutrals, less cropped tops and keep all things high waisted.

8. Who is your fashion icon?

Jen Reed. She's an influencer, not an icon-but I love her style and look to her for outfit inspo. 

9. What decade of fashion would you say is your favorite? 70's!

10. What shops (besides us of course)/brands are your favorite?

Madewell, Vuori and Outdoor Voices

11. What is your favorite place to vacation?

New York City

12. What are you currently reading? Who Moved My Cheese

Bonus Question!

What is a random fact about yourself that wouldn’t be on a resume? Like maybe a hidden talent? Or just anything you would like to add about your business!

Random fact-I used to have a perm.
