With The Electric Lady, we’re talking about self-actualization: being the change you want to see. It’s also more personal, more revealing. The new album deals with a new breed of women…strong, bold women who are taking their stands and not being marginalized.”

Track and field gold medalist Sanya Richards-Ross covers the August issue of Women’s Running where she talks about her new reality TV show, "Sanya's Glam & Gold", working out with her NFL cornerback husband Aaron Ross and gearing up for the 2016 Olympics in Rio. Here are the highlights:
On her good-luck charm:
“I have a bullet necklace that my mom gave me when I was in the seventh grade. She told me I was faster than a speeding bullet and so I wear it to all of my competitions…”
On her cheat days:
“On Saturday or Sunday, I’ll have something to treat myself with. My favorites are cheese pizza, rum ice cream and purple Skittles.”
On beauty and running:
“I put makeup on before I go out to run and I feel good, look good, run good - that’s kind of my mantra.”
On her beauty must-haves for running:
"I don’t have a full face on, but I wear my eyeliner, some mascara, a light shadow and lip gloss.”
On training with Aaron:
“My husband doesn’t really like to run on the track with me!” “He is definitely quicker than I am, I just have better speed endurance.”
On putting family first:
“My mom and dad are my managers, my cousin Yolanda is my publicist, and my sister and I have a salon together.”
On getting Olympian abs?
“Add 100 to 200 repetitions of abdominal and lower back exercises to your workout. That may sound like a lot, but just a few sets of 10 will get you there in no time!”
Sanya's issue of Women's Running is on stands now.
