On running: "While I knew running has been taking its toll on my knees and my body for a while, this past year, I've all but been ordered to stop running (I've had two knee surgeries and various hip issues), and it's high time I began listening… Two knee surgeries, physical therapy, and a whole lot wiser about my exercising, I feel better, stronger, move with less pain (yes, this is coming from a professional teacher), and more confident than ever."
What she does instead: Dance, swimming, and yoga. "Dance will always be my exercise of choice. And just after my knee surgery, I started swimming… I recently took a swim class and the instructor changed my stroke. Changing the way I swim has provided a challenge for me, which I love. Not only did I find a new way to exercise, but made some new friends in the process. I left feeling more satisfied from my 'workout' than I have in a long time."
