Meet mom runner 

Michelle Quinones 

Mother's Day is this month and we want you to get to know some of our Ambassador Mom Runners. These ladies are hard working and juggle being a mom, wife, & runner.

Michelle lives in Sunny San Diego, California and is a mother of 4 boys! We asked Michelle a few questions and here is what she has to say.

Q: How do you juggle running, work, being a mom, wife...?

A: Making time for myself has been a journey.

I work 3–4 12 hour shifts in a hospital as a Burn Technician at the UCSD Regional Burn Unit in a week and that makes it super difficult to workout/ run on those days. But, it gives me full days off to be able to run & workout. I love running, Mat Pilates, Body Pump & Spin classes. 

My priority is my family! My oldest use to run with me but now spend more time #adulting. 

I still have Aiden who is 12 that runs with me when I can pull him away from Lacrosse & Jiu-Jitsu!  

Q: What is/are your favorite race(s) to run with kids?
A: All my kids love the mud runs & Aiden loves doing the Run Disney runs at Disneyland. Aiden has also done the Junior Carlsbad races each year. Which is great for all ages of children. They run with kids that are their own age. 

Q: Favorite workouts to include kids?

A: Runs around our neighborhood. We also love to bike ride together.

Q: Post race kid-friendly snack?

A: Açaí smoothie or Açaí bowls

Q: Favorite kids running gear?
A: Nike & Adidas

Q: Favorite kids running shoes?

A: Nike & New Balance. 

Q: What are your favorite Miles & Pace products? 

A: My favorite Miles & Pace products are the Trucker Hats & tanks! All of them !!!!

Q: What do you love about being a Miles & Pace Ambassador? 

A: I love being a Miles  & Pace ambassador because I love what they stand for! 

Supporting family running, fellow runners & community.  I love the tank tops and the saying on them. #hustlehard #runbecauseyoucan #thankfulforeverymile #wildrunner 

And I stand by small businesses!

Q: Why do you run? 

A: I love running to stay healthy, be an example to my children, and the lifetime of friendships made on my #runjourney!
