On what really pushes her to keep running:
"Watching my dad was one of my biggest inspirations. There are days I don't want to get up, let alone run, and Jason's a great motivator."
On her choice of music while on the go:
"Kanye West, Jay Z... and I listen to Jason a lot. I can't help that- It's just nice to hear his voice. I've also been listening to some new up-tempo stuff of my own that I'm excited for people to hear."
On keeping her workout routine fun:
"I put my iPod on shuffle and let the song's face determine my interval. If it's a slow song, I turn the incline way up and jog to the beat. If a faster song comes on, I turn the incline down and watch the miles fly by."
