"A lot of people find inspiration through running and I'm definitely among them ... If I have a concert coming up, I love to put my headphones on and go over my whole program in my head," she told the publication, per ET. "In New York, it's especially gratifying, because I'll run down to the pier on the west side. Even though I'm surrounded by people, it feels like a very private time."
Emmy and Tony Award winner and Oklahoma Hall of Fame inductee, Chenoweth effortlessly transitions between stage, television, film and an accomplished singing career with the captivating grace that only she can project. She received rave reviews while starring in the ABC series "Pushing Daisies," where she received an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. "Pushing Daisies" was nominated for a Golden Globe Award and Emmy Award for "Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy". Chenoweth has appeared on Fox's comedy "Glee," where she played a former student who returns to town to help re-energize the Glee club, but brings her own troubles along for the ride. For this role, she was nominated for two Emmy Awards and for a People's Choice Award in the category of Favorite TV Guest Star. Chenoweth also starred as Annabeth Schott on the hit drama "The West Wing" and guest judged on "American Idol" and "Project Runway." Many remember her show-stealing, Tony-winning performance in You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown and her triumphant star turn when she originated the role of Glinda the Good Witch in Wicked, which earned her a leading actress Tony Award nomination. Chenoweth can currently be seen in the animated film Rio 2, voicing the character of Gabi, a hilarious poisonous frog.
