How did 2014 look for you as far as running? Any highlights that you'd like to share?

I ran my first, and second, marathons in 2013. It was such a great experience! I can't wait for the next!

Have you made any running goals for 2015?

In 2014 I'd like to work on speed. Nothing is better for that than having friends that get me out running regularly and occasionally push the pace.

The SGLRG has running events basically everyday of the week. Do you consider yourself a morning or evening runner if you were to choose?

I've become more of a morning runner since joining the group. When I'm on my own, I tend to procrastinate and run at night though.

Do you have a preferred race distance of choice? What races are you planning on running in 2015?

I'd like to get a few PRs this year, in the Half, 10k and 5k.

Why do you run? And what keeps you motivated?

I would love to run the Berlin Marathon. I had hoped to make it my first marathon, but it sold out in 3 hours while I was sleeping in 2013, and I didn't get a spot in the lottery for 2014. Here's hoping for 2015!

Introduction

I was a very casual runner for years, then a couple years ago got into races and kept picking longer and longer ones. Just finished my first marathon in April 2013, it was amazing!
