Lizzy Miller has always been active. When she lived on Long Island, N.Y., and her children were young, she would tuck them in bed, pack her gym bag and get in a workout. Until she got breast cancer, she was running six miles a day. Now she does some type of activity six days a week.
What sports do you play and why do you stay so active?
Tennis, 9-hole golf (which used to be 18-hole golf until I tore my rotator cuff), spinning, kickboxing and yoga. I walk the bridge with my dog every afternoon. I gotta move, ya know?
What’s your favorite sport and your favorite part about playing it?
I don’t have a favorite. I play for fun. If I miss a shot, no big deal. If the ball goes in the water, no big deal. The best part of having sports available is just being with all of your friends.
What’s the hardest part about playing sports?
I don’t take it that seriously, so, for me, it isn’t difficult. I enjoy my friends and the time we spend together. When that stops, I’ll stop playing.
Why is it important to stay active?
I need to stay healthy, and I feel exercise and my diet keep me feeling the way I feel and looking the way I look.
Where is the prettiest place you’ve played a sport?
If the sun is shining and you’re feeling good, everywhere is beautiful!
