|Columbus Marathon 2010|
Upon moving to Chapel Hill, NC after my college graduation, I obtained a job at the best running store ever, Fleet Feet Sports. Here, I attempted to sell more shoes/apparel than I bought and expanded my vocabulary to include terms such as: overpronation, supination and metatarsals. In addition, I entered a life-long love affair with Espresso Love GU and learned that pizza and beer indeed qualify as proper fueling after a long run. With my new found expertise, I successfully completed my first marathon in 2003, and it was so painful, I decided to keep on running them.
In 2006, I moved to Philly, a place I only intended on living for a year, but five years later, I'm still here. Running along Kelly Drive is probably the best part of my weekend, especially in the fall. In 2011, I decided to combine my two passions: Writing and running and alas, this blog was born.
A big goal of mine is qualifying for Boston. I've been unsuccessful on all 6 attempts and I blame it on the half-ass training I do leading up to the race. However, 2011 is about focusing more on running and less on booze and men. I'm optimistic that this year, a BQ will be mine!
