I don’t call myself hippierunner for nothin’! I have been running since I was 14. My running career began in high school where I participated in track, cross-country and SRLA. It was often tough but rewarding. It’s kinda crazy to think that during the week I would train daily for distances no further than 2 (3200m in track) or 3 miles (5k for cross-country) and then on the weekends race or train at high mileage as part of Students Run LA marathon training. I did races so often that I didn’t even keep track of them, simply because I didn’t think to (uh, bad idea) . But I found some of my race results on Athlinks.com. And soon I will be able to add more to the list, as I’m trying to get back into running races!

This was my first race ever! I remember not breaking into a sweat and realizing that I probably could have been a lot faster. But I hadn’t know what my limits were and I guess I was afraid to try pushing them.
I think this is the race I ran after having spent the past month or so not running at all! The doctor had heard something odd when listening to my heart so I had to visit cardiologist, get tests etc and was under order not to run- HATED this! About a week before this race, I learned it was just a heart murmur and I was alright to run. Even though I had missed out on training I couldn’t resist another race as my first had been so fun. Below is a race pic!

I’m not crazy, I just run inconsistently? For marathon #2 my longest run was probably 6 miles-not counting the 18miler- and that was a huge mistake but I did what I could.
