Several. My Uncle John ran the NYC Marathon several times when it was just a cool thing to do. He ran one of them with a 7 1/2 minute mile pace when he was 57. (OK, I think that is awesome!)
What I do for work:
Places Ive called home and why I like where I am now:
Texas, Oklahoma, Georgia, Arizona, Florida. Because I was born in Colorado.
When I started running and what got me started:
'04. The yoga studio closed. I started on a tread mill. Now I hate tread mills.
What does running mean to me:
It is a form of freedom; until I decided that I would make a good trail runner. (I'm trying, but now I am real slow!)
A ton of half marathons, the Marine Corp Marathon in DC ('06 and '07 for a charity.)... and my newest entry: I got into the Pikes Peak Ascent. Note to self: Do not drive the big truck to Manitou Springs; bring the little car. **Did the Marine Corp Marathon in '08 and had a negative split. I ran the second half 15 minutes faster than the first 13.1! Yeah baby! I was in the second way of the Pikes Peak ascent, I will try to get into the first wave for next year. :)
What I like about trail/mountain running:
I feel like I have earned my "huevos"!
Favorite running trail and why:
Any where, I love to run on a trail.
Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
I am going to run the Hat Run (30K) in Maryland March '09
Best running experience:
Running in the Marine Corp Marathon in '07 and '08. Ran in memory of a fallen hero and the family (Dad and Sister run) tracked my timing. Then I got email afterwards. What I did was such a small thing, and it meant something. (Gotta stop typing, tears welling up in my eyeballs!)
Worst running experience:
The '07 Denver marathon. I made the holes in my garbage bag too big and I got very wet. (Wore it the whole race, until I was ready to cross the finish line.)
Neatest thing found on a run:
Running related bathroom stop story:
Marine Corp Marathon '07. Several of us gals ran into the bushes, and then ran out when a bunch of guys were running by. They just missed it...! Haaaa
Running pet peeves:
Beeping noises made by electronic trainers and hrm - Garmin's, Polars, etc. . People who wear cologne or perfume and run!
Something non running related that no one would guess about me:
That I like hand puppets!
Other hobbies and interests:
24 Mountain Biking races, snowboarding, camping, learning how to rock climb with ropes, shoe shopping, eating lots of chocolate.
Run for you! Run at your own pace. If you sign up for a race, show up!
