Drea McLarty starts her run at 5:15 a.m. in Santa Barbara, Calif. It takes her about 65 minutes to go 9 miles, for a pace of seven minutes, 22 seconds a mile.
Drea McLarty, a 35-year-old mother of two, awoke before dawn to run nine miles on a recent Monday, then made breakfast for the family, did some errands and headed to the park for an hour of Pilates. Later that afternoon, she had a personal training session with a client.
