[ Q ] Did someone from Bodybuilding.com inspire you to reach your goals?

    My friend Maria in Finance got me hooked on marathons. I barely ran more than 3 miles a day before I met her. Then next thing I know I'm running marathons, it's great!

[ Q ] What is your favorite feature on the BB.com website?

    I like the training articles on the SuperSite. I'm always looking for new strength training exercises and it's pretty easy to just select the body part I'm looking for and go from there.

[ Q ] Does practicing the bodybuilding lifestyle improve the productivity of Bodybuilding.com? If so, how?
dot

    I definitely think it improves productivity. You can tell when someone's missed a workout because they're sluggish and grumpy. Those that work out all the time are upbeat and have tons of energy.

[ Q ] What are your future goals? Do you think working for BB.com will help you reach them?
dot

    I've had a lot of overuse injuries in 2009 so I'm determined to train right this year. I've let my strength training fall off over the last 6 months and I know that's why I'm injured.

    My goal in 2010 is to qualify for the 2011 Boston Marathon. That's going to require strong legs and a strong core. I'm already surfing the site for exercises to incorporate into my running routine.
