Having been a reluctant moderate exerciser for most of her post-ballet life, Petra started running races at 48. She ran her first half and full marathons at 49, then decided to embark on a 50 state journey. As an older runner, she found out the hard way that in addition to running lots of miles, nutrition and cross training are key for injury prevention. She has also discovered the fun of running with others and now runs 4 times a week with a local group The Chatty Chicks and Dashing Dudes whose motto is “finish upright and smiling”.She is looking forward to answering questions including marathon training at any age, recovery and whatever other topics come up, all the while pacing the group to their goal time!
