Meet Teresa Ornduff, housewife, mother, accountant, fitness consultant, world-class road runner. Participants in and followers of the sport of road running wonder how she does it.

Sunday, she'll enter the Carlsbad 5,000 as one of its leading entrants and with the year's second fastest time for an American woman for a 10-kilometer road race.
