Tam is a woman on a mission. At 36 years old she decided to become a runner. At 40, yoga certified. She has quite the track record with races too! Tam has run a total of 6 half marathons and 3 full; The Philadelphia Marathon twice and The NYC Marathon once. She's currently training for the Brooklyn Half on May 21st, and in November will be giving the NYC her second go. She told us jokingly, "each year my marathon time goes down and my age goes up!" Tam stays in tune with her weekly running schedule by working off of a training plan. She maps out her runs to prepare for the amount of miles she should complete for the week ahead.
Tam's positive attitude is infectious. We asked her about her motivation to become a runner in her 30's and where she began. She said, "When I started I couldn't even run a mile! But I got it in my head that I really wanted to do it, so I worked up to it on the treadmill first." She explained "After that I decided that I wanted to do a 5K, and after I completed that, I started setting harder goals for myself."
Wondering what can you expect to see from her during her time as a Brand Ambassador?
Well, lots of Instagram posts about her training during marathon season for one! She posts photos from every run. If you are ever up bright and early, walking the Hoboken waterfront be sure to look for her! Especially on Mondays, as she tries to get a 3 mile run in right after (B) CandyBarre. She also promises to post about healthy eating and has goals to start making smoothies every morning! Tam is the only Ambassador that is also an instructor. You can catch her on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays at the Willow Studio. If not there then definitely in class. Tam loves variety in her workouts, classes and instructors. "Oh! and playlists too!" she says.
