Megan Malasarte
Track & Field

Hi, my name is Megan Malasarte. I was born in Atlanta, GA. My sport is Track and Field, and I have been competing in it since I was 13 year old.

My favorite workout is a ladder cutdown on the track. I am inspired by my mom, and remembering my long-term goals keeps me motivated.

My favorite food is spaghetti and meatballs. I relax by listening to my music, and love listening to Hip-Hop.

My pre-competition ritual is listening to my pre-race playlist on my Beats headphones leading into warm up time.

What's the secret to my success? Maintaining a balance between my running and life outside of running.
