*She took on the challenge of Dancing with Stars in 2009. Now two years later, R&B singer Mya is taking on another big challenge running 26 miles.

She will be representing Team Animal League in the upcoming ING New York City Marathon on November 6th. Mya tells Chris Yandek of CYInterview.com about the preparation for the long run:

“I ran 12 miles today [on Friday]. It’s been painful, but it’s been productive and I love new challenges. So I hope to run next year and actually have a target time because this year you don’t. It’s just about finishing the race.”

Mya’s ultimate dream is still to go into space. The talented singer/dancer further stated she has a bucket list.

“To go to outer space, that’s my ultimate dream … I have a bucket list, so every year I have a new challenge, but every year I do something crazy. Last year, I brought in the New Year by jumping off a cliff in Brazil – going hang gliding, so adventure and taking risks and bringing people together, you know that’s my thing. So I enjoy it to the fullest I have to say.”
