Alicia juggles her sports as many as 10 different sports in one year and her competitive season starts in Feb and normally ends in late October or November each year.

This is the most Alicia EVER set in one year and the year is NOT over yet for her record setting…
Alicia is the World’s Most Prolific Strength and Endurance Record Holder that is also a World Champion Athlete – her post-race interview here:
Alicia has excelled in all forms of running from track to road to off terrain and is a former University of Florida track/cross country letter winner. I asked Alicia how does beach running compare to the other forms of running.
Alicia answered, “Beach running is challenging. You don’t know what you will get – beach wind gusts, thick sand, hard packed sand, and even running on a slant the whole time. You need to prepare for it all. Beach running requires extra sessions of feet and leg strengthening to handle the unbalanced sandy surface that challenges each step or your run.”
