For those who know me well, Alexi Pappas is my hero. I even have her "Run Brave" mantra tattooed on my wrist. I am one of her loyal "bravies"
I jumped at the opportunity to interview Alexi for Fast Running to talk to her about her upcoming marathon debut in Chicago.
"It was very challenging in the moment, and of course, I was frustrated when I was injured, but now I have rewritten that perspective in my mind. I know it was for the best"
I hope I can be a role model for runners everywhere, Greece included. In Greece, there is still so much impact I can have as a female distance runner, and I’m honoured to add to the tradition where long distance running (and the marathon) was born!
