Running is my fun thing!


"The voracious ambition of humans is never sated by dreams coming true, because there is always the thought that everything might be done better and again.” - The Fault in Our Stars

I'm a runner. At least, I try to be one. I'm not particularly talented or fast or disciplined, but I love it.

I've done a LOT of races, all for fun. (Me? Win? HA!) I used to track my results and races very carefully, until my computer lost a bunch of my photos and files, and a lot of my bibs and things got lost throughout the years of moving around :( Here is a spreadsheet of all the races I've ever completed, organized by year and distance, with PRs indicated in boldface.

(Race recaps available for 2011 and beyond)

Upcoming race plans:

My future in running is quite uncertain at the moment. I'm focusing on getting my knee pain manageable (and in the meantime, exploring the sport of powerlifting). But this is not the end! I will slowly make my way back out there.
