I was never a runner. My family is full of runners, and I tried, since I was in middle school, to become one as well. I just never got any better at it. Last year in April I ran the first 5k I ever did without walking. I ran it in 27:27 and I was sooooo happy. Since then, I’ve developed new strategies – mostly mental strategies and the whole barefoot thing (see barefoot 5k goal) – and I’ve finally become a runner. I am now running my 5k races in the lower part of 23 minutes, and I have officially signed up for a marathon!! Training got underway immediately, and I am up to 15 miles in my training runs! I never thought I could do this. It feels incredible already. Race day is September 8th. Plenty of updates to follow! 1 day ago

...unfortunately, I took a minute too long. I clocked in at 1:01:15. Last year, my time was 1:10. The upside is I did better this year, the downside is I failed to meet my goal.
BUT, I did have a lot of fun. People were in good spirit all around. And it was just one big party. No doubt, I’ll do this again next year and I’ll give it another shot.
Next stop, speedwork…

...and I’m starting my streak. Last year, I did 1:10. This year, I hope to get it under an hour. This year is my best shoot since I’ve been training for a marathon. So, this is it! Wish me luck!

I have always wanted to complete one. I ran cross country in school but never super long distances. 1 week ago
I made the track team at school. I am in the 4 by 100 meter relay team and long jump.
I need to get better at running long-distance. :/ 2 weeks ago
