Name: Lizzy Colanto
Location: West of Boston, MA, near the start of the Boston Marathon!
Years Running: Too many to count, 21 years I think.
10 Mile: 1:24:24
Favorite Race Distance: hmmm probably the half or the 10K but currently like the 5K since its only 3.1!
Favorite Pre-Race Food: I eat lobster ravioli from a local place the night before a race, signature dish!
Favorite Post-Race Food: I don’t have a specific food I eat post race!
How do you find/make time to train: This is a great question. I am currently gone from the house everyday for 11.5 hours. So I only train 3-4 days a week. I prefer to run before work but sometimes I sneak out during lunch and very rarely I run after work. But I prefer running around 7am.
Do you like running alone or with friends: I love love love running with friends. Generally if I don’t have someone to do my long runs with, I use the treadmill. I’m one of the rare people who likes the treadmill but obviously there is nothing better than running outdoors with your running buddies.
Favorite Quote: “Someday I will not be able to do this. Today is not that day.”
Fun fact about yourself: I think the number 9 alludes me. I want to break 1:50 and run 1:49. Break 50 and run 49. Run 3:59 someday in the marathon. In high school I came so close to breaking 60 in the 400 but never did. So someday, the number 9 and I will be friends and I will run the times I know I am capable of!
