on the line

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. IMG_1477

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!
