A mom of 3 boys, full-time accountant and a full-time student, Alexis first started running because she HATED it and wanted to see if she could MAKE herself do it. Over 900 miles and 17 races later, Rhianna describes it best: she’s found a love in hopeless place.
To move forward and get after the things in this life that we want for ourselves, it often takes a push from others and support along the way. Alexis, our new ambassador for Texas, and the rest of our team of IRUNLIKEAGIRL ambassadors around the country are helping us build connections and friendships between runners that might have not otherwise ever been. All ambassadors have selected Fall races in their state and we invite you to race with us. Who knows, you may just meet a whole team of new people that positively impact your life forever.
To all of our Texans and to all those that have been longing to visit the Armadillo state, you’re invited to race with Alexis & Team IRUNLIKEAGIRL. Alexis has selected two fall goal races: Clear Lake City Half Marathon in Houston (November 10) and the Run Girl Half Marathon also in Houston (December 6). If you’re interested in running one of these races or maybe you just want to quiz her nine-banded armadillo knowledge, Alexis is now accepting hellos: alexislockhart78 (at) gmail (dot) com. And because we all know that looking your finest equates to racing your fastest, IRUNLIKEAGIRL will have special active wear pricing for all of our teams.
I know how important running is as a part of taking care of myself so that I am empowered to be at my best for all of the different roles in my life. I’m so excited for this because if I had to describe my dream job it would be to spread enthusiasm, cheer, lead, help people set and accomplish goals, feel empowered and change my little corner of the world. And now here I am with an opportunity to do just that!
My favorite meal of the day is: dinner – usually the only time my whole family can sit down to a meal together.
Alexis’ finish at her first ever half marathon – Run Girl HM Dec. 2010. “I was crying my eyes out by the time I crossed the finish line. I was in the middle of a very sad divorce, and running probably saved my life. The sense of accomplishment and empowerment was unbelievable.”
Alexis & Jennifer– “Myself and my BFF at the 5K line during my first Full Marathon – Mardi Gras Rock n Roll New Orleans Feb. 2011. I love destination races and she is a GREAT traveling/racing buddy!”
