Both the sports of Track & Field and Soccer are quite historical in my family. My grandfathers’ not only ran track but also played soccer in Ghana, West Africa. As a result, my older sister and I took up both sports competitively in high school. During my high school years, I really excelled in the sport of Track & Field- as a result, I went on to run for a Division 1 college, Temple University. During my time running for Temple, we were sponsored by adidas. That’s why being able to partner with adidas on this campaign is so important and exciting for me. Because I was introduced to adidas apparel from my early student- athlete days, it has a always been my workout apparel of choice! I’m so grateful to now work with adidas to bring you cool campaigns here at Just Missed the Runway!


Running throughout my school years not only challenged me to give life my best at all times, but it made me take a competitive and disciplined stance in life.  I am constantly reminded of the 5 am workouts and track meets I competed in during my student- athlete days and tend to implement the same disciplined routine as a working adult. When I work out before heading into the office, I feel accomplished, energized and ready to take on the day!
