Q. Tell us a little bit about who you are and what you do for a living?
A. My name is Abiel Nazario and I am always excited to go on new journeys in life. I am always ready to try something new and I am am always ready for a challenge. I am an electrical contractor and the owner of JCA Electrical Services in Orlando Florida. I also am in the Air Force National Guard. That means for me there are no days off. Between ruining a business and prepping for deployments, I lose sleep just to make sure I get my runs logged in.

Q. How do you balance your exercise regime and your professional life?
A. Running isn't my highest priority, but I truly love doing it. Like I have mentioned before, I am always so busy. In order to make sure I get my exercises in, I lose sleep by either getting up super early or most times I will run late at night.

Q. When and why did you start running?
A. I started running in 2005. Just before I joined the air force. Only because I knew I would have to get use to it. Initially I hated it, but one day I ran by the perfect lake listening to a perfect song and found an inner peace that I have never experienced before. It was then I realized that It was the perfect way to spend time with my self.

Q. What motivates you to go out there, when you do not feel like it? 
A. Most times the stress motivates me. Running allows me to vent and just let go of what ever bothers me.

Q. What is the longest distance you have ran?
A. The longest so far was about 8 miles. That was years ago. 

Q. What gives you the confidence to run in the streets?
A. I'm not sure what gives me the confidence. I just enjoy seeing new things as I run.

Q. What do you think about the lack of exercise among the youth?
A. I think it is weakening our future. To exercise not only strengthens the physical body, but the mind and spirit. Our youth is our future.

Q. What was your best running experience?
A. My best running experience was when I was training in boot camp and I wanted to quit. I never felt so much pain in my life and we were running for what seemed to be hours. A buddy of mine running side by side with me said, Nazario think of your daughter, do it for her. I suddenly closed my eyes, saw her at the finish line, and began to run for my life.

Q. What was your worst running experience?
A. My worse running experience was when I bought the cheapest running shoes I could find, thinking it was ok to by any kind of running shoe. I was about 3/4s of a mile into the run. Suddenly it felt like someone lit a torch in my shoe. I learned buy the right shoe is important that day.

Q. How do you push through the pain? 
A. I grunt and talk through it. I remind my self that pain is temporary, and not making the goal is forever.

Q. What advice can you give somebody who wants to start running?
A. Learn to love it some how. Sometimes it's takes a while to find the love for it, but find a way. It is a great time to reflect and learn. You learn what your limits are and you get an opportunity to push beyond those limits. Then once you push past those limits a little bit more and more everyday, you begin to realize that you are limitless.
