About Me

Hi and thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog.

 I LOVE running. I never thought I would say that. I started running in the summer of 2005, my first summer living fulltime in LA. When I got started, I could run about 1 mile. Then I built up to 2 miles. I ran my first race in Phoenix at the Rock and Roll Half Marathon, in January 2006. From there, I took a short running hiatus and picked it up again in 2008 and have been signing up for races ever since. In 2010 I was in search of a way to stay not only motivated, but inspired and healthy I decided to set a major goal for myself. To run 13 half marathons in 13 months, 13.1 Going on Crazy as I like to call it. From there I went from Crazy to Goofy and completed my first marathon in 2013 at the Walt Disney World Goofy Race and a Half Challenge! To detail and track my progress I decided to set up this blog discussing the trials and tribulations of my runs. Thank you again for following me along my journey.

  1. melissa, You are truly inspiring to those of us who are less fortunate, you must have been influenced by something, somewhere in your life, … can you share that with me?
