my story

I'm Australian.

I live in Hawaii.

I have been running on and off for quite some time.  Never anything crazy, just a mile here or there.  I did complete a sprint triathlon years ago, around 2003.  I don't know what time I finished it in, but I finished it!  From there, I didn't really run much.  Surfing took up much of my life, I lived in one of the most beautiful parts of Australia during my university years, the south-west corner of Western Australia, so I spent a great deal of my time in the water.  I met who would be my future husband, and we travelled together all over the world surfing: Australia, Indonesia, the South Pacific, the US, Central America.

My real running story began when I moved to Florida at the end of 2010, by the end of 2011 I felt I needed to do something.  I had always surfed, but there was no (decent) waves.  I started running, and ran my first half marathon at the start of 2012.  I remember people telling me I couldn't do it.  I did.  And I am going to keep doing it.  I have completed 2 marathons, and maybe 5 half marathons - I really need to count them!

This is my training log.  This is where I will keep myself accountable.  This is where I hope to see my hard work pay off - I want to qualify for Boston.  I know this journey will be a long one, but I am ready for it.
