A pizza lover, an artist and a running enthusiast, Salina Scott is just getting started.
Being just her second year participating in the CariFin Games, it’s quite an accomplishment what she’s already achieved.
Emerging winner of the Urban Challenge Female Runners Category, Scott has already set her sights on bigger achievements in 2019. She also maintained her unbeaten status in the 3 events (1 Lap Savannah, 1 Mile and Chancellor Challenge of the Urban Challenge both in 2017 and 2018.
She said she gave her performance her all, despite how she felt on the day of the event.
“This year I was so grateful to be blessed with chance to compete after facing six months of downtime in 2017 due to an injury. Getting back into shape just in time for this event. I look forward to a bright 2019.”
Commenting on her training schedule, Scott said hills are her training course of choice.
Just like FCB’s Jason Julien, she trains with coach Richard Jones who ensures that she’s on track to maintaining and improving her performance.
“I had a very tight regime… I don’t just show up to sessions, I listen and I give effort even on easy days. I also put in cross training to stay healthy and protect my running muscles.”
Scott credits her success to God, the hard work she was able to put in, and coach Jones, who understood first hand each of the challenges she encountered.
Just a few more interesting things about her – she’s big on family, being one of six and loves crafting handmade cards for family and friends.
Congratulations to Salina!
