HONORARY MEMBER OF THE MONTH - DECEMBER 2020
SERENA MARIE RD
How did you hear about Pacifica Runners?
How long have you been a runner?
About 20 years
How did you get into running?
My lacrosse coach suggested it to me during practice Freshman year of HS because he said I had awesome endurance!
Do you have a favorite race(s)?
I love the Popular Brooklyn Half Marathon. It's right near my apartment in BK and it ends on the beach... my whole running club does it and its just SO FUN!!! I also LOVE the NYC Marathon. I only ran it myself once, but I (in non-COVID times) spectate every year and always get to high five some of my virtual clients on the course! It's incredible!
What are your favorite running trails/routes?
I love Holmdel Park in NJ and basically everywhere in Ithaca NY!
What are your future running goals?
If real-races are back in 2021, I want to run a marathon. I've been on a hiatus since 2015, but I think next year is a good comeback year!
What did you most enjoy about working with Pacifica Runners?
The people!!! You guys are sooo friendly and interactive and I love how eager you are to learn about nutrition. I loved how welcoming your community was! I feel like I really got to know your guys during the breakout sessions :) and made some new virtual friends!
Any other cool info about yourself?
I am super obsessed with food and running - and luckily got to make a career out of it!!! I am so lucky to have a virtual online private practice with clients from all over the world. I'm not sure how cool this is (lol)- but I adore Broadway music and blasting it while cooking/running is one of my most fave things in the world. I'm allergic to cats and dogs, but really hope to have a hairless dog one day as a pet. I also really love traveling and speaking Spanish whenever possible :)
