Movement is a Lifestyle Features 11:20 Paul Sorace

Moving2Live is a podcast about movement and exercise for professionals and aficionados.  We also have Movement is a Lifestyle Features. Each week, we publish a brief highlight of a 2- or 4-legged mover…someone who understands that movement is a lifestyle…not just an activity.  The questions are lightly edited to allow for easy readability.  Click MIAL Features for more info if you want to be featured/know someone who should be featured.

This Week: Paul Sorace

Where do you consider “Home”? New Jersey

What are your three favorite movement activities? Run, Resistance Train, Run

Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? Las Vegas, I was the 1:30 pacer for the RnR Half Marathon. I finished in 1:29:58. Bummer.

What is your favorite pre- or post-workout snack? What else… peanut butter.

What is your favorite thing to eat? Note: it does not need to be healthy. Shake Shack Burger, life changing! But Ben’s pizza may give it a run…

Do you have a movement activity on your “bucket list”? If not, what’s a movement activity/event you’re looking forward to in the next year? I’ve accomplished my fitness goals. Running sub-3 in the marathon. Bench pressing 300 pounds (a long time ago). All relative I get it. At this point in my life, it’s about fitness maintenance.

What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting people to move more? “I’m too busy”. We all are, I get it. Take a walk during lunch. Walk the hallway if the weather is not ideal. I did it. My co-workers looked at me oddly at first, eventually doing the same.

What do you feel is the most adventurous movement activity you’ve ever done? Running alone in Death Valley. There wasn’t a sign of life for 100 miles. I was crazy when I was younger.

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? Sleep!

What is your favorite spot within an hour of where you are currently living? (Bonus points if it is a “hidden gem”) Balthazar. Google it. The best restaurant in NYC. I can get you and Ben a reservation (Covid willing) in 10 minutes. And I have the WiFi that “doesn’t exist”.
