Starla Garcia & Fredis Benitez

Ali on the Run Show Episode 331: Love on the Run with Starla Garcia & Fredis Benitez

“I just looked over at her and said, ‘We should be something.’”

She’s a 2:43 marathoner and Olympic Marathon Trials finisher, and he’s “not a huge runner” who runs a 2:51 marathon: Meet Starla Garcia and Fredis Benitez from Houston, TX! Starla (a returning favorite on the Ali on the Run Show) is a registered dietitian, and Fredis is a marketer and designer, and they bonded immediately over a shared love for music. On this episode, Starla and Fredis, who have been dating since 2016, talk about creating boundaries in a relationship, about not playing games, and about how Starla knew she liked him when he said he likes vegetables!
