Featured Miler - paula sallade
Member: Paula Sallade
Nickname: “P”…my soccer coach in college started calling me that and it caught on with most friends and family.
Number of years as a Miler: 6
Who introduced you to the Milers: Jeff Sallade. He used to go out running (all the time) with these fit, fun, (crazy) people and I wanted in! We started getting babysitters so we could both go when Jack was 5 months old. I ran my first half marathon with the group 3 months later.
Running Pet Peeve: Skipping the morning workout to “sleep in” but tossing and turning for an hour and then looking at the clock at 6:30 thinking “I should’ve gone. I would be done by now!!”
Most embarrassing running moment: At the Chicago Marathon in 2017. It was a hot day and I was afraid of dehydration so I took sips of Gatorade at every stop it was offered. Well, that caught up with me by mile 25. I pulled a Donovan McNabb in the Super Bowl and puked it all up. Mile 26 was the best I had felt in a while!
