A little background – I’ve been running since 4th grade or so and, over the years, I went from being in a love-hate relationship with running my guts out to being in a love-love relationship (minus the whole getting up early on race mornings…). I ran xc and track in high school (mile and two mile, wohoo!) and then had the amazing opportunity to run for a Division I team for 5 years while getting my undergrad degree. I’m currently figuring out how the heck to train and race on my own (I miss my team!) and am fighting for a comeback after some injuries and a bout of mono.
Why I blog (about running): I started reading other people’s awesome running blogs when starting out as a team-less “retired” post-collegiate runner. The inspiration and virtual camaraderie were invaluable! I’m hoping some other struggling runners will get a little boost from my random musings on running 🙂
Favorite race: 5k! Although the mile, 10k, and half marathon are all tied for a close 2nd 😉
