How did you hear about Pacifica Runners?

Michelle Forshner

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 :)
