I started my running journey 9 years ago. I'm a back of the pack runner. Sometimes I'm a THE-back-of-the-pack runner. Sometimes I have to try my best to pass someone to not be last, or have to do advanced calculus to figure out if I'm going to make the cut-off at a race.
I race for fun. I run to be outside. I love climbing mountains and descending canyons. I love the outdoors and would happily live in a little off-the-grid mountain shack if given the opportunity (and a really good reason to convince my husband to join me).
I love turtles. They are symbols of wisdom. They carry their home on their back. They are slow and enjoy the scenery. I am all those things (well, except for maybe the wisdom part).
Give me a Grand Canyon to climb down in and explore or a mountain top to be summited and that is all I need to feed my soul.
Run Turtle Run... and I do.
