Alissa Knows What She's Wearing On Friday

The countdown till National Wear Red Day continues!  Do you know what you'll be wearing to raise awareness about heart disease in women?  Alissa M. does!  She's picked out this snazzy outfit for her Friday morning workout:

Alissa's plans for National Wear Red Day include running five or six miles in Central Park.  She'll take those miles at an "easy pace" (her words, but she's known to be pretty speedy!), so she'll be ready for a 16 or 17-miler on Saturday morning as a mentor with the DetermiNation team.*  Go, Alissa! 

There's still plenty of time to do your laundry, pick out your red outfit and plan your active National Wear Red Day.  While you're doing that, ponder this statistic from Go Red For Women: "Eighty percent of cardiac events in women could be prevented if women made the right choices for their hearts involving diet, exercise and abstinence from smoking."

*DetermiNation, the American Cancer Society's nationwide endurance event program, meets twice a week to train for a variety of events, including some key local events: NYC Half Marathon, Brooklyn Half Marathon, NYC Triathlon and NYC Marathon.  Athletes make their training miles more meaningful by raising money for the American Cancer Society in an effort to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.  You can find more information on finding a DetermiNation team near you here.
