On running: "I went to a military college and commissioned into the Army, so running has been part of my life for quite some time. At one point I was clocking 50+ miles a week, but unfortunately I suffered some pretty severe consequences: adrenal fatigue, shin splints so bad my legs turned green (yes, green), muscle atrophy… you name it. Lucky for me, I got a new job in the Army that doesn't require me to run."
What she does instead: CrossFit, Tabata training, HIIT, hiking, biking, heavy weight lifting (Click here for eight reasons why you should do it too!), and yoga. "The changes were almost immediate—I started building more muscle tone and definition, I got stronger, lost body fat (especially around the middle), started sleeping better, and stopped getting sick all the time. While I was 'fit' but still pretty soft and skinny-fat before, I actually look like I work out now. I even entered a bikini competition last month (pictured) and finished third in the open division, qualifying me for NPC Nationals!"
