TSR Runner of the Week-Brandy Dickess
By: Kayla Dodd
Congratulations to TSR Runner of the Week Brandy Dickess! She has been on her running journey for 2 years now and loves it. Her first race was on May 25, 2015 and was the St. Mary’s Medical Center 14th Veterans Memorial Day 5k. She holds a current 5k PR of 27:09 and one of her primary running goals is to run a marathon!
Brandy said that part of her motivation to run is that running can make any bad day better! One of the cool and fun things she has experienced on a run is being able to see rainbows! Her upcoming race calendar consists of getting ready for an upcoming Turkey Trot this Thanksgiving. Her dream race is of course, the NYC Marathon!!
Her favorite running/motivational quote is quite simple: “Just Run!” Her best experience from running has been being able to make new friends. Her favorite brand of running shoes are Brooks and her favorite piece of running gear is her flip belt! Brandy’s furthest distance that she has run so far is 13.1 miles. When asked what advice she would give to a beginner runner she said, “Start with couch to 5k program and go from there.”
Running has had a huge impact on Brandy’s life. Running has helped her get into shape and changed her life! Congrats to Brandy on all her running accomplishments, Team TSR will see you at the finish line!
