Our Q & A With Cynthia


You have a State Farm Insurance Agency in Manhattan Beach, please tell us about your business.

I started my business in January of 2004, my husband and I were newly married.  Since that time we’ve had two children and my office team has grown to 4 employees.  I feel like I have two families to nurture!


How long have you been a sponsor of the Manhattan Beach 10k?

I guess I should look at my race t-shirts as to when I started!  I enjoy seeing the same faces every year, some new ones, and catching up with everyone.  The energy is always so positive.

How did you first get involved with the race?

I like having athletic goals on the calendar to keep me moving forward.  Supporting the local community through a 10k made it an easy decision to sign up. 

Rumor has it that your kids have helped at your expo booth so you can participate in the run! Is that true?

Yes, both of my kids and their friends really enjoy ‘helping’ me out at my booth (in spite of getting out of bed earlier than they’d like).  Although, they spend most of their time chatting up the other vendors and business owners…..I want to run this year so they will have to stay put just during my race.  

What can participants expect to see at your booth this year?

Hmmm, I should take a poll of what goodies people want at the end of their race!  I usually have branded items such as bags so the runners have something to carry all the goodies.  I’ve given out sunglasses, sunblock, lip balm, water.  I’m always thinking of what I would like and would stand out so people may think of my office when they need an insurance quotation or have insurance questions.  If you have any good ideas, please let me know asap so I can starting buying!

What do you most love about the race?

I truly love bumping into friends, clients, and so many people I know in the community.  It feels good to support a place that we all love….the good energy really fills my cup.  As far as the actual race, my absolute favorite part of the race is coming down the final stretch on the Strand and hearing all of the homeowners cheering for the runners.  That’s what keeps me coming back!

What made you get into running?

Since I’m a very slow runner, I’ve never really considered myself a ‘runner’.  I got into running for exercise, and ultimately enjoyed losing myself in my music and the way I felt afterwards.  It’s kind of a meditation for me.  I have a desk job so I know I just have to keep moving any way I can.  A nice balance of yoga, circuit training, walking, and running seems to keep me going and feeling good.
