Trail running is so much fun, and great training for my marathon goals.
I want to meet other runners in the area. I have not lived here for very long, moved from SoCal 4 years ago, so I am still trying to meet people and am tired of running alone all the time. I hooked up with Guerilla Running in Olympia for a while, but it is too far to travel to regularly. I work at UW Bothell , so I figured a Seattle running group would be easier to meet up with on the way home from work. I ran the Long Beach half marathon last year with my brother's running group in SoCal and it was an awesome experience with so many friendly and supportive people. I have run several races alone since then and would like to have that experience locally, if possible.
I started running in July 2012, and have finished 10 half marathons so far! I am training for my first full marathon in June 2014, San Diego RnR. Between boot camp classes, yoga, and running, I have lost over 85 pounds over the past two years!
