Running + Dance = Fabrice Calmels

(L to R) Margaret Fuhrer, me, Michael Anne Bailey and Katie Rolnick—all sweaty smiles post-race!

When I’m not immersed in all-things-dance, my #1 passion is running. I got hooked on running a few years ago and have since completed three marathons and a bunch of shorter distance races. (Two years ago, I even got Dance Spirit‘s fashion editor at the time, Michael Anne Bailey, to train for and run a 4-mile race with me in Central Park while the rest of the DS staff cheered us on—on a very early Saturday morning, no less.)

So when I’m not reading Dance Spirit, I’m reading my second-favorite magazine: Runner’s World. And imagine my surprise and sheer delight when I saw my two passions combined this month in RW‘s “I’m a Runner” column!

In every issue, the editors at Runner’s World profile a celebrity—an actor, a musician, a chef—who is also a runner, and this month they’ve featured The Joffrey Ballet’s Fabrice Calmels. Here’s a video they did with Fabrice:

So for all you dancers out there who think running is off limits—it’s not! Just take it slow at first and always be safe and smart.

Happy dancing and running!
