Real Name: Laura Shuford
Birthday: Dec 31, 1905
About Me: Born in California but grew up primarily in Arizona. Now we live in Quincy MA and love New England. We have 3 awesome kids : 4, 2, and 6 months.
I went to Auburn University from 1992-1996. I met my husband in college and we eventually moved up to Western Massachusetts, then NH, and finally Quincy.
Currently I am a full time mom to my three muskateers.
Motivation: My motivation is myself and my family. I would like to enjoy competing as long as possible and to show my kids that I can win and lose gracefully.
Goals: My goals are to finish my first marathon in May and try to be the best parent I can be and continue to expose my kids to a diveristy of sports.
Workout Routines / Fitness Tips: I usually get up around 4 a.m. and run around Quincy. Once I get home I pour a pot of hot coffee down my throat so I can stay up with my kids daily schedules.
I would highly recommend strechting before and after all workouts.
Top Sports: Swimming
Defining Moments: I think my defining moment was when I became a mom. It has helped me mature mentally, although I don't think I will ever me in the shape I was as a swimmer I at least have the will to try. It also keeps me motivated to get out and keep on doing things I used to enjoy before kids.
