SoleMate Spotlight: Marnie Foster


Today we spotlight Marnie Foster, a SoleMate for the 2016 NYC Half Marathon!

What motivated you to run in the NYC HALF Marathon this year?

I decided to run in the NYC Half Marathon because I want to eventually run a full marathon, and I figured running the half is a great way to start!

Why did you choose to support Girls on the Run?  

There were so many different teams that I could choose from while registering for the half marathon. I chose Girls on the Run because their message and mission inspired me the most, especially growing up as a girl and with a younger sister.

What tip do you have for other SoleMates?

A tip that I have for other SoleMates is to make a playlist of your favorite songs that you can't listen to until race day, so you always look forward to the next song.

What is your favorite running accessory?

My favorite running accessories are my balega running socks, which are super comfortable because of the cushioning around the heel and the toes, and also my beats wireless headphones so I don't need to worry about any wires while I'm running.

What is your favorite run in NYC?

When running in NYC, I love running around the park or around the reservoir.
