Since there are so many new readers, I thought I’d put together a video Race Diary of the last three years. Check it out below, and learn about the time I:
- Ran a 15.4-mile trail race
- Yakked at the finish line
- Raced in three races in one weekend
- Got disqualified from a race
- Won a race
- Raced with Meghann, Lindsay, Jenna, Abbie, and Melissa
- And more!
I can’t WAIT for my next race, which is a 15K in September. Woo hoo!

I need to remember that although these things may bug me from time to time..they are still parts of who I AM.. and they are not going anywhere, so I better learn to love all those imperfections!”

What physical "imperfections" have you learned to embrace? I’ve learned to love my stomach — I spent so much time trying to "get it flat" in the past, and now I realize my womanly curves are fine just the way they are. 🙂
