The time has come for Amy to leave NY for Berlin


At the time she shared a social media post which read: "First official day of Berlin marathon training and encouraging everyone out there to grab a friend and take a walk, a run or even a stretch – or one of our favorites – you an even hit the social dance button on an @apple Watch and burn calories on the 'dance floor' aka my kitchen."

The avid runner goes out jogging four to five times a week and often shares photos from her exercise regime.

Amy's husband Andrew Shue has been training with her too

"I run because I want to explore new paths. I run because I want to feel alive, and sometimes I run because I need to sweat out fear, sadness, frustration or anger."

She continued: "It doesn't matter if I run one mile or 14, my mood is always brighter and my heart is lighter after pounding the pavement. It's been a remedy for jet lag, a way to push through the nausea and fatigue of chemotherapy, and the best thing about it is I can do it wherever I am in the world. It simply requires a pair of running shoes and an adventurous spirit.

Amy and her running buddies are ready for the marathon

"While I enjoy solo runs, over the past year, I've started to run with friends. We encourage each other and motivate one another to run faster, longer, and more frequently."

Amy added: "I want to encourage everyone out there to get out of their comfort zone and go for a run. It doesn't matter how far or how long you run, just that you start by putting one foot in front of the other."
