I’m a 27-year-old female currently living in Phoenix, Arizona. I started running regularly around February 2008 and since then have become addicted to collecting finisher medals. So far I’ve done races at distances ranging from 5ks to half marathons, as well as a duathlon and a few non-traditional events.
I was hoping to run my first marathon in January 2010. Unfortunately my plans got derailed after having a serious lupus flare-up in October 2009. For now I’ve turned to walking instead of running as my main form of exercise, and I’m participating in events simply for the experience (and the finisher medal) rather than trying for any specific time goals.
I love all things Disney, and the idea of doing the Walt Disney World Marathon someday was one of the primary influences in why I started running. When I’m not running walking or biking, I like to read (romance novels and chick lit are my guilty pleasures) or play video games (mainly Nintendo, but occasionally PlayStation).
