27th Birthday Bragging Rights

Today I am 9855 days old,  324 months or more more commonly put, today I am 27 years old. At the ripe old age of 27 I have now been running consistently for 6 years and doing races for 4. I wish I could say I am where I want to be, but I still want to get faster, and I am slowly getting there.

From a girl who completed almost every competition distance (under ultras) before the age of 25, I have to say I am pretty pleased with what I’ve completed on my 26th year on earth. Running really became a predominant factor in my life this year, I mean it always has been, but after working strictly at a running store this summer I have fell in love with the entire life style.

As I turn 27, or as my student called it, my grandmother years, I look forward to working harder than ever before. Which I know I have said before, but this year I have accountability for it.

Please enjoy my list of things I’ve done and list of things I hope to do.
