I run to stay in shape these days; it’s also something I enjoy doing with my fiancé (we like to sign up for races) and with my dog. I used to be a competetive runner (I ran cross country and track in college), but now it’s just for fun.

I’ve been a runner since I was 15 (now in my 30s)

i run around my neighborhood or on trails. I enjoy trail running more. 

I’m currently training for a 15k; I think I’d eventually like to run a marathon or an ultra marathon. 

I run by myself, with my dog, with my fiancé, and with friends

I’ve done many half marathons (13.1 miles)

Why do you run? = I love the mental clarity (no headphones/music for me) and the way it makes me aware of my body, breath, heartbeats, footfall, etc. Also, I crew for my brother who is a crazy, elite, ultra-athlete and running helps me better support him. 

How long have you been running for? = Pretty much since I was a kid. I remember footraces in elementary school. 

How often do you run? = I’m running 1-3x per week now but hoping to bump it up a bit more since I have a half marathon in May. I ran in the rain on Wednesday and it felt amazing! 

Where do you run? = I strongly perfer trail running over street/track/treadmill running. Hell for me is running laps around a track. I’ve been trail-running for over 10 years and I absolutely love it. I live on a hill and there is NO flat ground within 3 miles of my house. So I’ve learned to love hills. 

Do you have any running goals? = Yes! I want to break 2:10 on my next half marathon (May) and improve my time on the Catalina Island Half Marathon (November). 

Do you run solo or with others? = I run solo 90% of the time; occasionally I’ll run with my spouse (slower than me) or my brother (waaaay faster than me) or a girlfriend (close to my pace). We used to run with our two Siberian Huskies 3x per week but they’re older now so we stick to 1-3 mile jogs (casual trail runs, walk the uphill sections, jog the downhill sections)  about 2x per week now. 

Finally, what is the furthest you’ve been able to run? = Umm, I don’t like really long runs (I get bored) so my longest “training” run was about 16-17 miles. But I’ve done 2 marathons (26.2miles each) and hated it. I’m definitely a mid-distance runner. I’ve done 20+ half marathons. 13.1 is my happy place.
