Molly Nunn – Runner
Originally posted in Skirt! Magazine
Molly Nunn runs. She runs long, she runs hard, and she runs often. The 26-year-old Winston-Salem native currently logs 70+ miles a week in training for the 2012 Olympic Marathon Trials, while simultaneously working full-time at Allegacy Credit Union and getting her MBA at Wake Forest University. Molly, who walked-on on WFU’s track team as an undergrad, really got serious about running after college. “I stepped back and said ‘Whoa. I’m not ready to hang up my racing shoes yet.’” Three years later, her long-term dream is on its way to becoming a reality: She runs her first qualifying marathon in January.
What does running feel like?: “It feels like love – with all of the incessant hopes, tenacity, pain, passion, dreaming, eagerness, perseverance, sacrifice.”
