Peg’s Posts: A day with Deena


Thanks to some pros on both sides of the lens, our shoot wrapped earlier than expected and Deena was able to relax for the evening and join our fitness marketing and sales team for some of KC’s best barbecue. She was still raving about the dinner when I picked her up the next morning for our ride to the airport. As soon as we hit the highway, a wave of panic swept over me. Scary thought: If we wreck, I’m wrecking America’s dreams of a gold medal in the London games. Deep breaths … stay calm … this is like any other drive, I told myself.

Then I relaxed and reveled in the thought that I had a full 45 minutes to pick Deena’s brain on everything from anti-inflammatory foods to acupuncture. Last topic was of interest after reading that she regularly has acupuncture done to relieve inflammation from a metatarsal stress fracture (same bone I fractured nearly five years ago as a newbie runner). Deena’s so down-to-earth, I felt at ease conversing with her and gleaned much wisdom that I plan to incorporate immediately once my latest injury abates. Like varying my diet from my steady favs and getting more sleep. “Naps are an essential part of my training. After a morning of workouts and lunch, I get giddy when I get to lay down for a nap.” And then it’s time to start the cycle all over again, ending her day at 6:30 or 7 every evening she’s training. More on the insight we gained from Deena in future posts.
