And I’m back!
Yup, after the terrible attack at the Boston Marathon, I realized how much I miss competing. I had a lot of time to just sit and think about all of the things I’ve accomplished as a runner. I knew I was still part of the running community, but it just wasn’t the same. So, after a three year hiatus – I’ll be stepping up to the line on May 18, 2013.
My sister has recently completed two 5k races, and improved her time by 5 MINUTES! That’s awesome, and made me miss competing anymore. Now, I’ll get to race with my sister – and my goal is to qualify for a marathon. Of course there will be many 5ks and half marathons before this 26.2 mile race, but I’m up for the challenge.
This article was from my senior year in high school, when I won the 2,000 Steeplechase. It wasn’t my best race, but the Steeplechase was my favorite event, and it was one of my last meets as a St. John Villa runner. I’ve accomplished so many things while wearing that uniform, and I’ll always be proud to have been a part of that team.
I guess you could say I’m really excited to finally cross the finish line again!
