This is Meet My Workout Routine, where we profile weekly workout routines — unvarnished and imperfect — from women across all walks of life. Check out our past profiles here.
Who: Tiffany Chenault, PhD, is a professor at Salem State University who researches and writes on the intersectionality of gender, race, and running. She’s a traveler with the goal of running a half-marathon in every state (she got to 46 before the pandemic) and is the Boston chapter ambassador for Black Girls Run. She blogs about her running journey on RunISee50.com.
What: Her workout routine over one week in June 2020
The details: Tiffany described herself as an “early morning, cool weather runner.” This was the first week of summer (aka not exactly “cool weather”), and she said it was an interesting but challenging week, as she was also dealing with some knee pain. She runs in Boston and the greater Boston area. “Running in different neighborhoods and communities not only motivates and mixes up the runs,” she told POPSUGAR, “but it’s also a way to understand and see the diversity (or lack [thereof]) in running.”
