Christine Sprehe - New Braunfels, TX
Christine Sprehe has been a life-long runner. She began running at a very young age and joined track and field in middle school. In her junior year of high school, she was recruited for the cross country team. Today, she prefers to run trails as she loves nature and enjoys the quiet time to herself.
Christine's biggest challenge is finding the time for her training. To help combat this, she keeps a planner and sticks with it and uses virtual races as motivation to keep going. She states, "I first began the virtual races based on my personal preferences for medals and the theme of the race. Having something tangible to show off all of your training is motivating, especially if it is very unique. I think that virtual races can connect people and be a support group for everyone's fitness journey."
Virtual races also give her a way to participate in events with her sister. Although they live in different states, they were recently able to run "together" by signing up for the same virtual event.
