Introduction

I run for fun

How long have you been running and do you have any bucket list goals you are motivated to accomplish?

I ran my first 5k in 2012 and my first marathon in 2016. I NEVER thought I'd do a marathon (much less a half) until I joined this group. Still contemplating the bucket list.

How did your 2018 go as far as running? Any highlights that you'd like to share?

PRd my half marathon by almost five minutes and PRd my marathon (it was my third one) by 9 minutes - whoop! And came in under my goal time by two minutes (3:58).

Do you have any running goals for this year? Any races on the calendar for you?

I'll start training for my fourth marathon late summer and am going back to do the California International Marathon again but this time I'm going to go for my BQ - eek! It will require a 3 minute improvement to meet the qualifying time and I'll need to shave another couple of minutes off to actually make the cut off.

What’s the best way to get you to show up for one of our group runs?

Running buddies get me there. MeetUps I attend most frequently are Monday Morning Track, Wake Up Wednesday, BFLUR (Before FLUR - 5:30am - not an official MeetUp but we usually have a good sized group) and Rise n Shine.

We’d like nothing more than to have you joining us for runs. How can we best support you in helping you get the most out of running?

Keep doing what you're doing - awesome running buddies and lots of support and encouragement.
