On running: "I once thought that I had to run to be fit, so I avoided exercise most of my life. Luckily, I have good genes and always stayed thin. However, in the past year I decided it was finally time to get in shape."
What she does instead: Spinning (three times a week) and weight-training classes at the gym (twice a week). "My butt has firmed up, I have abs, and I really feel that I am in the best shape of my life at 34 years old!"
