The Cut talked to the six-time marathon runner about why she keeps running so much, how her ex-boyfriend introduced her to yoga, and why being able to touch your toes is all in your mind.
How I start my mornings: Usually, behind the ball. No one in my household is a morning person. For breakfast, everyone does their own thing.
We make them smoothies. You can make ice cream or soups, not that we do that very often. Someone did a demo.
To me, wellness means: Beauty, health, holistic health, being rested, feeling enough energy, and feeling naturally stimulated and open-minded. When I was a teen, I was a cigarette smoker. Even then, I was doing yoga and exercising, so in my mind somehow, I was able to come to terms with it.
I thought about wellness in my modeling days, too. I started doing yoga then. When I was working and traveling a lot in the early days, I would go to a spa or yoga retreat for my vacation.
I learned early on in order to be my best with the work schedule I had, I needed to take care of myself. Now, because I do endurance running, I feel so much stronger than I have during any other time in my life. The original campaign was more inspired by Calvin and his own life. I was fluid and moving. For the most part, it was a moving camera. A lot of turning, holding hands, and a bit of a dance.
It was shot over two days in Turks and Caicos. How I sweat: Yoga and running are my two main loves and what I crave and enjoy the most. On running: I started running five years ago. I started running on a road in Long Island where there were a lot of cars going really fast. I wanted to be able to hear what was around me.
But then I started to really appreciate having silence and it became more of a meditation practice for me. But after, I feel euphoric. Which is why people do it again and again. After long runs, I do salt soaks. After my first marathon, I got on the plane the next day and flew to Bali.
Now I give myself a day or so after with a little soaking and yoga. Cold baths also help. I also do acupuncture. On yoga: I went to my first Kundalini yoga class in L. My boyfriend at the time was a meditator and did some yoga. Looks cool. I went the first time with him, I stuck with it and then dropped him. I like moving postures, more fluid savasanas. I studied philosophy and Eastern religion in college. My depth of knowledge around yoga and its origins made the practice more enriching.
My dad was a smoker. I think part of me was mimicking him or emulating his behavior. By the time I was 18, I knew it was gross to get up in the morning and have a cigarette and coffee. At 25, I quit for good. Two years later, my dad died of lung cancer. I knew I would never smoke again. My early public health advocacy was talking about cessation.
My mom got into yoga after my dad died, in her late 50s. Kids are natural yogi. Every child is flexible and can bend. Starting yoga early and keeping it in your life is the best way to do it.
But flexibility is more of a mental thing. You have to be open. Baby steps.

This is probably partly because all clothes are made to fit skinny women with excessively long legs and having to pay for clothes and then pay more to make them smaller has always seemed wrong to me. Except that by then it was no longer in stock. A week or two later and I was at the Exclusive Books sale. I just keep going back and spending more money. Anyway, there I spotted this book, albeit with a slightly different cover. So I bought it. This is an inspirational book designed to help you incorporate yoga into your daily life.
