Places Ive called home and why I like where I am now:
Lived my whole life in Voorheesville, now at school in Rochester, which I'm not so fond of (the city, not the school), too flat, city, ect
When I started running and what got me started:
I started in 8th grade when my 2 friends convinced me to run track with them. Since then I've been hooked!!
What does running mean to me:
It's a way to meet new people, get exercise, and daydream.
Ran Mount Washington
What I like about trail/mountain running:
Its really pretty and much more relaxing than running of the roads.
Favorite running trail and why:
The Indian Ladder Trails on the top of the escarpment near my house. They're pretty and have a good mixture of varing hills, flats, and even a couple of ladders.
Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
The Merck Forest and Farmland Mountain Goat Run- its just so relaxed and fun! The trails are pretty and for prizes they give away cool running stuff from the sponser's store.
Best running experience:
Running the Mohawk Hudson River marathon, yes i know it sounds crazy but i actually had a really good time and thought it was a lot of fun.
Worst running experience:
running around the hallways in my high school for track- incredibly boring and resulted in painful shin-splints
Neatest thing found on a run:
A pair of oakly sunglasses- in near perfect condition. Being a poor college student this was an exciting find. Ironically, my sister also found a pair of oaklys on the same trail a day earlier.
Running related bathroom stop story:
I was trail running and had to go to the bathroom and wiped with a poisonous leaf - very painful and uncomfortable, since then i always carry toilet paper.
Running pet peeves:
When running on the road- cars that pass you going a zillion miles an hour. Also the fact that running shoe companys dont make very many shoes for poor narrow footed people :-(
Something non running related that no one would guess about me:
I drove from Voorheesville (near Albany, NY) to Alaska in 3 days.
Other hobbies and interests:
Hiking, backpaking, canoeing, soccer, skiing (basically anything outdoors related to exersize)
