I'll do sprints on the Key Biscayne bridge. That's by far the most difficult bridge I've run. It's so steep, and a mile long. Not so dangerous for running because it has a concrete barrier for pedestrians.
Today, I did track work for an hour. Couple days ago, my long run was two hours. My medium run is an hour to hour and a half.
I was never an athlete until I started running in college. That's when I was my heaviest, 200 pounds. I started dieting with Weight Watchers and running every day. I lost 70 pounds. My pace at first was 14 minutes per mile, which is slow.
Fitness for me now is not so much about looking good but feeling good. For me, it's a lifestyle. No going back to what I used to be.
What's your typical daily diet?
I'm a vegetarian. No chicken, no dairy whatsoever. My diet consists of fruits, vegetables and nuts.
I work the night shift 12 hours, 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., so it's challenging for my diet. My typical breakfast is at 1 or 2 in the afternoon, after my workout. I'll have a super shake of bananas, berries, any kind of berry I like, with spirulina and chlorella and maca. That'll hold me for about three hours.
I'll snack on apples with organic peanut butter, or carrots with organic hummus. I'm big into bananas because of the training and needing potassium.
For lunch — dinner really, around 8 or 9 p.m. — I'll eat salad with fish like tilapia or salmon. I love salmon. I don't do dressings.
All throughout the night, I'll snack — raw broccoli, I love a handful of raw sweet peppers.

What's your workout routine?
Four to five times a week, but I'm active with our kids seven days a week!
I love to change it up and keep it fun and keep my body guessing. I go to Midtown Athletic Club, give myself one hour, put on headphones and work out hard.
I do weight training with light weights, added with plyometrics and 30- to 60-second cardio drills in between the light weights, like sprints or mountain climbers or hopping over a bench to get that calorie burn and build muscle. For the light weights, I'll do arm curls, shoulders. I try not to go heavy. I like that lean muscle.
I like to change up and go run hills with my brother at Vista View [park in Davie]. Zach and I will run four to five miles on these hills. And we run pretty quick. I work hard …
