engage Window or Aisle? Chatting with a Frequent Flyer Beth Deloria, manager of community outreach for Allard USA, a company that provides assistive devices for people with physical challenges, flies almost as much as she runs. How often do you travel? Right now I travel about three times a month, but sometimes it’s every single week. I’m mostly traveling with the company to run the Rock ’n’ Roll Series of half marathons. I’ve done 25 races over the past year. They’ve been all over including Phoenix, St. Petersburg, Pasadena, New Orleans, Dallas, Nashville, Portland [Oregon], San Diego, and Chicago. Beth’s Travel Tip I HAVE DOUBLES OF EVERYTHING — LOTION, MAKEUP KIT, RUNNING GEAR, AND OTHER ESSENTIALS. THAT WAY I CAN KEEP A BAG PACKED AT ALL TIMES, AND I’M SURE NOT TO FORGET ANYTHING. What obstacles have you overcome in order to run so much? I had a serious spinal injury several years ago, and I was left with paralysis in my left ankle. It was really devastating because I had always been an athlete. I had to relearn how to walk and balance. It took two years to finally find this brace to run with, and I’m able to run much the same way as before because the technology is so amazing. Many people don’t know it exists, and that’s why I took this job — to educate people with mobility issues. Do you have a favorite city to run in? every city, but I fell in love with Portland. It feels like a small town in a way. When you’re not running, what are you doing? I absolutely loved Portland. I love something about DIVIDEND MILES Insider SHENZHEN AIRLINES HAS JOINED STAR ALLIANCE v Sleeping! No, actually I do a lot of social media outreach. The reason we run is to raise awareness. So I connect with people and get them hooked up with the right channels for their area. Other than that I just love to be home and to cook in my own kitchen. Why US Airways? US Airways works for me because I’m in Greensboro, North Carolina, and Charlotte is the closest hub. It makes it easy to get across the country. US Airways covers the East and West Coasts and has great options. Window or aisle?
