Hey Everyone! My name is Rae and I am currently a college student. During my freshmen year (I'm currently a senior) a friend of mine pushed me to go running with him and I reluctantly went. I am so glad that I decided to go with him. Ever since that day I have become addicted to running. I did my first 5 mile race and 10k last year and now I will be doing my first half marathon with my sister and my mom in Madison.
I am getting very excited but also nervous for my first HM. If anyone has any advice I would absolutely love to hear it. I am really interested in hearing more about how you train for your races and runs, what clothing or equipment you use to help your runs, and what music gets you going.
I would love to hear from all of you. I need more runner friends to help me stay motivated and to talk about running because not many of my friends love running as much as I do.
Good Luck everyone on all your goals!
"Racing teaches us to challenge ourselves. It teaches us to push beyond where we thought we could go. It helps us to find out what we are made of. This is what we do. This is what it's all about." -PattiSue Plumer, U.S. Olympian
